German-Style Pork and Sauerkraut
posted by CJMartin - 1/21/08

Cindy's Notes: The amount of veggies/sauce is very generous. You could easily throw in a couple more pork chops and feed 6. Cut the apples very thick as they tend to cook down into the sauce. The pork chops were incredibly tender.

6 boneless pork top loin chops -- 1" thick
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 large onion -- sliced thick
2 medium turnips -- peeled and sliced
2 medium Granny Smith apples -- cored, peeled, and sliced
16 baby carrots
1 16 ounce can sauerkraut -- undrained
1 can low-fat cream of celery soup -- (10 3/4 oz)
2/3 cup low sodium chicken broth

Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork chops with Mrs. Dash and pepper. Cook in skillet over medium heat until browned on both sides.

Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray. Combine sliced onion, turnips, apples and carrots in bottom of slow cooker. Top with sauerkraut. Place pork chops on top. Combine celery soup and broth; pour over all ingredients.

Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high heat for 3 1/2-4 hours.
