ISO German Smoked Pork Chops

David Kahn Sep 26, 2006 01:07 AM

My mother-in-law (who is German) is in town, and I know from past experience that she makes a mean pork chops with red cabbage. I've been trying to get her to cook this dish for us, but she says that the local Hancock Park Pavilions doesn't have the right kind of smoked pork chops. Can anyone help me with this? What are these things and where I can get some?

    European Deluxe on Olympic / Robertson has excellent smoked pork chops. You can by them by the rack or the piece. Your MIL will also probably enjoy chatting with the butcher in German. Great sausages.

      Alpine Village in Torrance is the German one stop shop, worth the trek! Great fresh rolls.

        Another thing I always buy from Schreiner's is their Canadian Bacon.

        They'll cut it to your thickness, and its also very smoky.

        Much better than the grocery store stuff.

            Van nuys german deli on Roscoe just west of woodley has Kassler Rippchen. These are the smoked pork chops and I"m pretty sure what you are looking for. Ask your mother-in-law.

              this place has the german-style smoked pork chops that you're looking for. and will cut chops to any desired thickness. delicious-aromatic dry smokiness, but the meat is firm and succulent. they also have a good selection of sausages, beer, and german food products.

                  I buy the Schreiner's smoked chops all the time - just cooked them for dinner
                  last night. It is the best thing Schreiner's sells (although I
                  am also fond of their ``old-fashioned'' liverwurst, especially if you ask the
                  woman behind the counter to cut it a whole inch thick. Very, very

                    sounds good-i'll have to try the liverwurst next time. I also buy smoked ham hocks there for making soups/stews (w/ autumn just around the corner-yeah)

                  They're a German deli and make and smoke all their own sausage. Call, they may have what your looking for or they can tell you where to get it. They make the best bratwurst around...would make some big bonus points with your M.I.L.
