What do you do with smoked pork chops?

What do you do with smoked pork chops? I love pork, love smoke, love BBQ, etc., but am not sure I've ever had a smoked chop. Would you eat it as is? Cook it in a choucroute?

  1. Make a Kassler Rippchen meal. It's a classic German recipe with smoked pork chops (sometimes loin). I'm sure there are plenty of recipes online.

    In fact, here's one that looks tasty:

      You took the words right out of my fingers. Kasseler rippchen indeed,

      I also brown them and serve them with braised cabbage and all sorts of other delicious things.

    2. Get a recipe for cooking greens such as Kale, Collards, etc. . Add the smoked chops and Cook until they and the greens are done to your liking. Enjoy!

        The same way I use them, plus in "cassoulets" and choucroute. They're too salty for us when eaten alone; we marinate and grill regular pork chops for that flavor. Cook all my country veggies in it, plus add it to dried red beans and dried limas.

      2. when I was a kid I used to LOVE these for breakfast

        1. First buy them from a local butcher / mexican grocer. I have them cut thin (1/3 inch). They are excellent breakfast / brunch food but there is a must have side - a heaping pile of home fries. Make em your self or get a sack of them from your local Yellow Basket / or simailar restaurant.

          1. you can serve them with a wurst of your choice...braised red cabbage, saurkraut, hot potato salad... very German. or large dice them, brown in a very little bit of oil with onions, garlic, add greens of your choice, I like kale, cook down with a bit of liquid... then add a can of rinsed red beans, season to taste, let flavors meld. yum.
