Thank you everyone.

I hope you like it Timothy and Bucky, let me know what you think of it. I like the combo of fennel and caraway seeds. This was inspired by my dads adoptive parents. They were Danish and cousins of Victor Borge.

Bucky this is the pan. I got it at Chef Central in Paramus (which is the same price as the FoodNetwork's offering). I LOVE it.

I've got a 5.5 qt Cuisinart Chefs Classic saute pan. Now I know how you fit all those chops in there. That thing is huge.
Great tutorial.

Thank you Pac. I have several Cuisinart pots and pans and love them all. I cook for 4 and like to cook everything in 1 batch.

I like that the lid fits on their skillets as well. I imagine all makes are like that.

Actually I only have 1 pan (the 5.5 qt) but I have about 3 pots and yes all the lids fit nicely. PLUS I like that I can start on the stove, cover and finish in the oven if I want. I make my stuffing in my Cuisinart Chef's Classic Stainless 5 Quart Multi Pot then put it in the oven.

Looks scrumptious! Ive never done this with fennel, but it looks so good, I might try it that way.

Hey msmofet, I have this simmering on the stove right now! I decided to leave out the sauerkraut, but everything else is pretty much the same.

I have four HUGE browned chops buried in the taters,onions and mushrooms and it's simmering nicely. The whole house is smelling GREAT!

I used the portabella mushrooms. I love them because they have such a rich taste that blends so well with meats.

I figure since I'm finishing in a stove top simmer, I'll give it about 45 minutes at a simmer to match what the 350F oven would have done.
