Pork Loin Chops with Sauerkraut (Serves 2)
I love tasty meals that I can cook fast, with little effort. This one ranks high on the tasty-fast-simple scale. The Publix Supermarket coaxed me into trying it by displaying bags of barrel cured sauerkraut in the meat case with pork loin chops. I’d never seen sauerkraut in a reseal-able zip-lock bag before, but it was good and I would buy it again.
Prep Time and Cook Time: 15 minutes
2 boneless pork loin chops
1 jar or package of sauerkraut
Directions: Pre-heat non-stick grill-pan or skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of pork chops with salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and rosemary. Lay pork chops in the hot grill-pan and let sear undisturbed for 5 minutes. Turn with tongs to let the second side sear for 5 minutes. Open the sauerkraut as the second side of the chops begins to sear and transfer to a microwaveable dish. Heat in the microwave – one serving takes 2 minutes and two servings takes 3-4 minutes. Transfer chops to plates when cooked. Fill the rest of the plate with sauerkraut. Enjoy!
Notes: No sauerkraut I ever ate was too salty, but some eaters don’t agree. You might want to taste the sauerkraut before heating it. If it is “too salty” for your taste, rinse the sauerkraut by soaking it in plain water and then pour the water off through a slotted spoon or a colander.
