Pork Chops with Sauerkraut and Apples

Submitted by: SECRETLYBJ

Introduction

Pork chops can sometimes be dry and tough, but in the slow cooker they turn into a meltingly tender succulent entrée. These chops rest on thinly sliced sweet apples, flavored with Dijon mustard and brown sugar, and are covered with onions and sauerkraut. This one-pot meal is terrific to serve with mashed potatoes and applesauce. Pork chops can sometimes be dry and tough, but in the slow cooker they turn into a meltingly tender succulent entrée.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
    4 Braeburn apples, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
    1/2 cup dijon mustard
    1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
    Six 1-inch thick pork loin chops
    2 medium sweet onions, cut into half moons
    One 1-pound bag sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
    1/2 cup apple juice

Directions

Pour half the butter into the insert of a 5- to 7-quart slow cooker. Add the apples and toss to coat. Stir the mustard and sugar together in a small bowl and dot the apples with 1/4 cup of the mustard mixture.

Paint the pork chops with the remaining mustard mixture and put the pork chops on the apples. Heat the remaining butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté until they begin to turn golden, about 15 minutes.

Add the sauerkraut to the onions and stir to combine. Spread the sauerkraut mixture over the pork and pour in the apple juice. Cover and cook on high for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours, until the pork is tender and cooked through.

Serve the pork chops with the apples and sauerkraut.
