Easiest-Ever Choucroute

What in the world is Choucroute?  According to Merriam-Webster.com it is a French, modification of German Sauerkraut – it is sauerkraut cooked and served with meat. Our family likes both – Score!  I came across this recipe trying to find something to make out of the pork chops I had bought in bulk (package of 10).  It was time to change-up the regular – grill & serve.  The recipe is below.  It is very yummy but don’t take my word for it.  You will have to try it and let me know what you think.
