Slow-Cooked Pork Chops with Sauerkraut and Apples

Super-easy paleo crock pot pork chops!  Also good with sausage chopped up and added (this makes a sauerkraut-apple-sausage accompaniment that can be a meal in-and-of itself if you end up with extra!)

Ingredients

  • 4 pork chops, about 1/2” thick
  • Non-virgin olive oil for browning
  • 1 medium onion, halved, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. caraway seed
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 3 cups well-drained sauerkraut (squeeze it!)
  • 1 cup sliced tart apples
  • 3/4 cup apple juice

Directions

Brown pork chops in frying pan over medium heat (just enough to seal in juices.) Set aside.

Mix together onions, sauerkraut, and spices.  Put about 1/4 of the mixture in the bottom of the crock pot.  Place pork chops on top.  Cover with remainder of onion-sauerkraut mixture.  Top off with apple slices.  Pour apple juice over the whole thing.

Cook on low for 6-7 hours.
