Super Easy Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

I was craving my grandma’s pork roast and sauerkraut, but it was a weeknight and there was simply not time to pop that roast in the oven for a couple of hours – and I don’t make sauerkraut. But then I got an idea!

Why not fry up a couple of pork chops and dress up a can of kraut? And so I did!

Here’s How to Do it:

Start by seasoning the pork. Liberally sprinkle with garlic salt, pepper, rubbed sage and garlic powder.

Heat some olive oil in a heavy skillet (I live by my cast iron) and brown the chops on both sides over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, slice up the hearts of palm and the onions.

Push the chops to the side of the pan, add the butter and let it melt. Next, add the sauerkraut, onions and hearts of palm. Reduce the heat to low.

Cover and simmer until the pork is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Serve with some olives and a little green garnish (like parsley). The sauerkraut is buttery and tart and the pork is tender and savory.
