What to do with smoked pork chops?

The butcher had smoked pork chops. They looked good, so I bought them. Now what do I do with them? They are all together, not cut into individual chops, and I have about .8 kg. Any ideas?
They can be prepared with a cabbage green or red ,kraut etc .... and apples .....as well as with green beans or rutabaga which would work in my opinion
I love to simply brown them in a pan. I think if I'm paying for them, I want that terrific, smoky flavor all by itself. Serve with some sort of apple..apple sauce, sauteed apples.
Good sauce: 1 part good red wine vinegar; 2 parts port (ruby probably best); two tablespoons cranberry sauce (no sugar, cooked low with no water); teaspoon chopped rosemary; tablespoon butter. Lightly brown chops, remove/keep warm; add first three ingredients above & reduce; finish w/ butter. For 2 chops. If because of season, can't find cranberries, use canned/jarred lingbonberries.
