PORK AND SAUERKRAUT SKILLET DINNER

2 tbsp all-purpose flour
4 loin pork chops, ¾-inch thick
2 tbsp canola oil
1 small yellow onion, cut into wedges
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
½ cup water
2 cans (14-oz each) sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
½ tsp caraway seeds
1 lb. small new potatoes, quartered
1 large red apple
Coat both sides of the pork chops with the flour. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat and brown about 3 minutes on each side; remove from skillet.

Add the onion, salt, and pepper to the skillet where you browned the pork chops; saute for a minute. Add the apple juice and water. Stir in the sauerkraut and caraway seeds, mixing well. Add the potatoes and place the browned pork chops on the top. Cover; reduce heat to medium-low and cook for half an hour. Cut core the apple and cut into ¼-inch wedges; add to the skillet. Simmer, covered, for another 10 minutes until the apple is tender and chops are cooked through.
