Recipe Review: Pork Chops w/ Apples & Kraut

Alright so here's something new for our site. Morrisa and I are both doing Weight Watchers. We know that there are other's out there that are always in search of good food that is not only healthy and point friendly but tastes good. So as we come across these foods and recipes we are going to share them with you.

We followed this recipe exactly and really found a winner. This was AWESOME!! One thing I may change is I would throw the whole bag of kraut in with the apples. I'd rather have more sauerkraut than it called for, only because you're using the kraut and apples to top your pork chop and you can use a cup full to top it off. Since sauerkraut with Weight Watchers is free points wise you don't have to worry about adding too much of it. The pairing of the pork chop, apples, and sauerkraut is great because you get a salty, sweet and sour combination.

Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples and Sauerkraut  
6 Points

Prep Time: 8 minutes     Cook Time: 15 minutes     Serves: 4


  • 1 Pound lean boneless pork chops, center-cut, and 1/2-inch thick, trimmed of all visible fat, 4 (1/4-pound)
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tsp safflower oil (has the same nutritional value as Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • 3 medium fresh apples, Golden Delicious, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sauerkraut, drained (Best to use bagged, refrigerated sauerkraut as opposed to canned)
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seeds

Sprinkle the pork with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the skillet. Add the apples and cinnamon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples begin to brown and get soft, 3-4 minutes. Add the sauerkraut, caraway seeds, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook until sauerkraut mixture begins to brown, 2-3 minutes. Serve with the pork. Yields 1 pork chop with 1/2 cup sauerkraut-apple mixture per serving.
