“This is an oven-braised recipe using pork ribs, pigs feet, bratwurst, and a smoked pork chop. If you don't care for pigs feet, feel free to substitute a little more of the pork ribs, or use whatever you do like. But, seriously, do not fear the pigs feet, they add a nice flavor and silky texture to the broth.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Season the pork ribs with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; set aside.
  3. Heat a medium saucepan, over high heat, add the pigs feet, wine, and bay leaves; bring to a boil, dover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large Dutch oven, over medium heat, toast the coriander seeds for about 2 minutes, remove from heat; remove to a mortar and pestle, or use the side of a knife, and lightly crush them.
  5. Return Dutch oven to the heat, add the olive oil, increase heat to medium high and add the bratwurst; cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes then transfer to a plate.
  6. Reduce heat to medium, melt butter, cook onions until softened, about 5 minutes; add apples, cook until both are golden, about 10 minutes more.
  7. Add garlic, cook 2 minutes.
  8. Add the wine and pigs feet; simmer 2 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pot for any stuck on browned bits; add sauerkray, pork ribs, 3/4 cup water, carrots, coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  9. Nesle the pork chop into the sauerkraut.
  10. Cover the pot and bake for 1 hour (or transfer to an oven safe casserole).
  11. After an hour, turn the pork chop and add in the bratwurst; cover, and return to oven for 30 minutes.
  12. Simmer, uncovered, until the juices thicken up and the meat is tender, 30 to 45 minutes longer (return to Dutch oven if using an oven-safe only casserole).
  13. Serve with boiled potatoes and garnish with chopped parsley.
