German Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

by 247tasty

German food, especially when autumn comes, is so good. The food that is made in a Dutch Oven is not better. You will be glad you did if you don’t own it, place it on your wish list. This dish is very mild but delicious food, combining the ingredients. I like mashed potatoes, but you can take the distance and prepare German pancakes. Sauerkraut is shredded fermented cabbage. It begins with a simple cabbage base shredded together with salt. The salt is massaged into the cabbage until it is formed with liquid (or brine).

Loving pork and sauerkraut bakes if you’re looking for a delicious way to prepare fork-tender pork. A one-course meal is full of sauerkraut potato and pork chops, apples, and onions. You will fall in love with the perfect combination of savory. I choose a thick pork shoulder chop or a chop with lots of marbling for this recipe. When you cook a well-marbled chop of pork (or pork steak), it will be tender at low temperatures for a long time. It can become dry and hard, which is disappointing if your pork is lean or too small. This recipe makes a generous amount, I hope you’ll do it and share it with your family or friends.
