Pork Chops with Sauerkraut and New Potatoes

From Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes For Two

Cooker: 1 1/2 to 3 quart
Cook: LOW 6-7 hours

1 Tbsp olive oil
2 1" thick boneless center-cut pork chops or shoulder chops
4 red or white new potatoes, thickly sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Paprika to taste
1 shallot or white boiling onion, minced
1 16oz bag or jar fresh sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
1 Tbsp dry white wine or champagne

In a heavy skillet over high heat, heat the olive oil and quickly sear and brown the pork chops on both sides.
Place the potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the pork chops on the bed of potatoes. Sprinle with salt, pepper, paprika, and the shallot. Arrange the sauerkraut over the pork chops, then sprinkle with the wine. Cover and cook on LOW 6-7 hours, until the meat is tender. Serve immediately.
