Family Recipe Friday.... Saurkraut and Pork Chops

Saurkraut and Pork Chops

My Grandpa Dreher was German, through and through. And as such, he was a real meat and potatoes kind of man! Meals tended to be heavy, as well as protein and carb intensive!

Here's a dish that my Grandma Dreher used to make rather frequently for him.

Saurkraut and Pork Chops

6-8 medium sized pork chops
1 large jar of saurkraut [you can use the kind with caraway seeds if you like]
4-medium potatoes cut into medium sized chunks
1/4 cup medium-brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400-degrees farenheit.
Use a 9-x-13 inch baking pan, and lightly grease.
Place pork chops in bottom of pan, in a single layer.
Salt and pepper lightly.
Cover with potato chunks. Then with drained saurkraut.
Sprinkle brown sugar over all.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1-hour until meat is cooked thoroughly and potatoes are tender.

This is served as a complete meal.

Whenever this is cooking in my house today, I am instantly transported back to my childhood and those memories of Grandma and Grandpa's kitchen!
