That’s what we had two days ago: YUMMY!!! When shopping at “our” H.E.B. in Floresville – we prefer driving to Floresville [about 25 miles] as there’s a much greater choice there compared to the H.E.B. in Kenedy [5 miles only] we found the “real” “Kasseler Kotelett” – smoked pork chops, that is. I call those “real” since first, as chops, they have their bones still – “with a handle”, as I usually say, and second because they are much thicker than the boneless ones, which makes them juicier after cooking and not dry as pork chops easily become. So we bought a package with two chops – quite “untexan”, a package with two chops only! And the day before yesterday, in the evening, I cooked the chops in Sauerkraut, with only a little Knorr beef broth added. Actually, the dish doesn’t need much added flavour as the smoked pork chops have quite a bit of their own. Wahetever, they were absolutely yummy – quite like what I was used to at home with mum. As I always say, “I could sit myself down in it.” Of course, Kasseler with Sauerkraut should have gone with mashed potatoes, but I simply was too lazy to mash the potatoes Mary had cooked and add milk and butter. So I just mashed them on my plate in the broth. Not a bad idea at all. And we really need to repeat that dish some time soon. Talking of Sauerkraut: i’s a pity that I can’t get “Raeuchermettwuerstchen” here. They would go very well with Sauerkraut, too, as well as with carrot or kale stew or pea soup. But maybe I can get them somewhere. I seem to vaguely remember having seem them in a German delicatessen online shop. Maybe I’ll find them some time.
