Growing up, my mom always made pork chops with sauerkraut every single New Year's Day. Just simple fried pork chops with stove top heated sauerkraut from a can. Nothing too fancy, but also not my idea of a tasty way to start the new year. I always ate most of my somewhat overcooked pork chop (love you, mom!) and forced down at least one bite of the sauerkraut because of that whole good luck thing. I mean, I wasn't about to chance an entire year of crappy luck because I couldn't eat just one teeny, tiny bite of fermented cabbage. ;)

Fast forward to 20-some years later, and I still serve a pork dish to my own family on the first day of the new year for luck. Usually, I serve cabbage of some sort (fried with a little bacon is my preference), but long gone are my days of tough, pan fried pork chops. Nowadays, I tend to slow cook a tender & flavorful pork loin roast or pan roast some thick & juicy pork chops. 

If you are ready to change up that usual New Year's Day pork chops & sauerkraut for a pork dish that is a little more ooooohhh & ahhhhhh-worthy, then you are going to love this collection of 12 Elegant & Impressive Pork Dinners that I am sharing with you all today...
