How do you cook your pork chops?

Love that quote, Kay, use it often. I'll never forget the Thanksgivings as a young wife when both my mom and my MIL hovered over me in the kitchen. Creeped me out big time. Yes, I cooked the giblets as instructed, then when nobody was watching, I carefully threw them in the garbage.

Brats are meant to be cooked in beer at some point, then grilled. At least, that's how it was done in Wisconsin when I spent a few years there. Pork chops might also be good cooked in beer.

There are so very many techniques to cook everything, and that are enjoyed by those that use them, that I won't call many of them wrong. The only couple I can think of is to make a natural sourdough poolish and use that to make pancakes, and to use baking soda as a meat tenderizor, leaving the baking soda on the steaks as they cook. Those were two terible taste sensations that I had the misfortune of eating at other people's homes.

Thanks Chief. I have some sausages in the freezer. And a large container of sauerkraut in the fridge. The two are just waiting for a marriage to take place.

Now that's funny!! At least you got them out of the paper pouch hidden in the neck.
Yes, Brats are meant to be cooked in beer at MY house too.

I have never had Brats. Exactly what are they? And since I don't have or drink beer, how else would you cook them?

Forget the water! I sometimes start my Italian sausages off in wine. When it evaporates, they brown off nicely in the remaining fat.

For the health nuts: I'd rather be fat and happy than flat and snappy!

You've never had bratwurst? What kind of sausage are you planning to have with your sauerkraut?

You can only cook them with beer.

Most things improve in flavor if cooked in beer. The cook improves when "marinated" in beer too.

Apple cider or apple juice. When I don't have beer, don't want to get a can, and want to cook pork "German style" I'll use apple cider or apple juice instead of beer.
