Are you looking forward to Oktoberfest as much as I am? I am really not a beer drinker and never was, but I do love an occasional beer. And there’s no better beer than European. I don’t even need a glass.
If you are celebrating Oktoberfest at home I just have the perfect recipe to serve with your beer. Smoked pork chops – kassler with homemade remoulade sauce is a must!
Kassler Chops with Remoulade
Kassler (German cuisine) is a slightly smoked and then brined cut of pork. It has a wonderful flavor and it’s a breeze to prepare. You just brown it briefly on each side and done. The secret of the yummy sauce is the anchovy paste. Don’t don’t cringe, you really can’t taste it. Do you like Ceaser salad dressing? Guess what? It has anchovies! So get over it and give it a try. I promise, you won’t regret it!

4 Smoked Pork Chops
1 ½ pounds Fingerling Potatoes or Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes
½ cup plain Yogurt
½ cup Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon chopped Capers (optional)
1 chopped Anchovy or 1 teaspoon Anchovy Paste
¼ cup chopped Pickles
1 bunch fresh Parsley, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
A pinch of Sugar
3 tablespoons Oil, divided
Cover potatoes with water in a medium size saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes. Drain and cool slightly then peel.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place smoked pork chops in the skillet and brown for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove the chops from the skillet and keep warm. Add the remaining tablespoon oil to the skillet. Toss in the potatoes and turning them occasionally bake until nicely browned, about 5-8 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, combine yogurt, mayo, capers, anchovy, pickles, and parsley. Season the remoulade with salt, pepper and sugar.
Looking forward to connecting with you soon.
