Description

Kassler chops, also known as Kasseler, are a popular cut of smoked and cured pork chops originating from Germany. These chops are renowned for their distinctive smoky flavor and tender texture. Kassler chops are typically cut from the loin, but can also be made from the rib section, offering a balance of lean meat and rich flavor.

These chops have a tender, juicy texture with a pronounced smoky flavor due to the curing and smoking process. The curing process also adds a subtle salty taste.

Preparation and Cooking Tips for Kassler Chops:

  • Grilling: Grill Kassler chops over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side until they are heated through and have grill marks. Since they are pre-cooked, grilling primarily enhances the flavor and adds a bit of char.
  • Pan-Searing: Sear the chops in a hot skillet with a little oil or butter for about 3-4 minutes per side until heated through and golden brown.
  • Baking: Bake Kassler chops in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through. This method helps to retain moisture.
  • Boiling/Simmering: For a traditional German preparation, simmer the chops in a small amount of water or broth with onions and bay leaves for 20-30 minutes until tender and heated through.
  • Seasoning: Kassler chops are typically well-seasoned from the curing and smoking process. Additional seasoning is usually minimal, but they can be paired with mild herbs like parsley or dill, or a glaze of honey or mustard for added flavor.
  • Resting: After cooking, let the Kassler chops rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to redistribute, ensuring maximum tenderness and flavor.
  • Accompaniments: Kassler chops pair well with traditional German sides such as sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, red cabbage, or potato salad. They also complement roasted vegetables, applesauce, or a mustard sauce.
