Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 15 minutes



  • 4 pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

  3. Add the pork chops and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, until browned. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set aside.

  4. In the same skillet, add the sliced onion and minced garlic. Cook until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

  5. Add the caraway seeds and bay leaf to the skillet and cook for another minute.

  6. Stir in the sauerkraut and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer.

  7. Return the pork chops to the skillet, nestling them into the sauerkraut.

  8. Cover the skillet and let it simmer for about 45 minutes, until the pork chops are cooked through and tender.

  9. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Serve the pork chops with the sauerkraut and enjoy!
