"German" pork chops

I'll throw my hat in the ring.

This one comes in at around 5 bucks, and feeds four to six, depending on how hungry you are. My grandmother used to make something similar, this is the streamlined version of the more authentic(and expensive and time consuming) schnitzel and rotkraut.

6 pork chops (One of the groceries near me does assorted "scrap" chops for a buck a pound occasionally, so I'll buy a bunch)$2

1 can of salt brine sauerkraut (Just water and salt and cabbage) 1$

1/2 jar of plain apple sauce(the chunky kind's better, but usually the smooth kind is cheaper. Cinnamon or raspberry sauce just ends up being gross. Yes, I've tried them) 1$

1 heaping handful of dried brown raisins(A couple of the mini boxes of raisins is fine too) 1$

Pile it all into a large casserole dish, slop about with your hands, and bake at 325 for about 40 minutes. You can add caraway seeds if you like before cooking.

Most people don't think "Mmmmm, sauerkraut and applesauce", but trust me, the flavors compliment each other.
