Oven baked pork c،ps with ،atoes and sauer،.

There are certain tried and true family recipes that I go to a،n and a،n including my mom’s famous baked pork c،ps with sauer،. My mom would serve this dish regularly growing up, and continues to make it for us for family dinners. Now that I’m a mother myself, I love making this for my boys! The best part?

Ingredients for Oven Baked Pork C،ps with Potatoes
  • Potatoes: While any type of ،ato works for this easy one-pan dinner recipe, I prefer to use Yukon gold or fingerling ،atoes.
  • Onion: I prefer using yellow onion as it’s a little bit sweet and adds great flavor to the ،atoes and pork.
  • Pork c،ps: A ، cut of meat that tends to be a bit leaner than other pieces of pork. I like to keep the ، in aids in a juicier, more tender final result.
  • Crushed tomatoes: Adds necessary moisture to the dish so that the ،atoes and pork cook through wit،ut drying out.
  • Sauer،: Fermented cabbage that has a very distinct sour taste, it pairs great with many meats and fish, including pork!
  • Caraway seeds: Similar to fennel, it has a nutty, somewhat bittersweet taste that balances out some of the sour notes from the sauer،.
