Dinner Tonight: Sauteed Pork Chops with Sauerkraut

I decided that I need more sauerkraut in my life. You ever get that feeling too? On my last trip to the grocery store, I bought a huge jar of the stuff. Obviously it makes a hot dog better, but what else could it do? This recipe from Gourmet for pork chops with kraut sounded good.

The one-inch-thick pork chops were predictably great, but I was most impressed with the combo of caraway seeds, apple juice, onion, and bacon with the sauerkraut. How could that be bad? It's even more dynamic with fresh dill. I wanted there to be more interplay between the kraut and the chops, but they are cooked separately and only combined at the end. Still, it's all remarkably easy and tasty.

What else should I do with my big jar of sauerkraut?
