During my time in the Air Force I was lucky enough to spend several weeks at both Darmstadt Air Base and Ramstein Air Base in Germany. Last weekend I smoked 8 pork chops and had 8 still to use. Last night I ran the chops through an egg wash and then rolled them through salted bread crumbs. Meanwhile I sautéed a package of mushrooms in 4 Tbsp of olive oil. To the sautéed mushrooms and oil, I added 4 cups of heavy cream, corn starch, flour, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, and two splashes of worcestershire sauce. I whisked all of it on low heat until it took on the consistency of gravy. Once I had the gravy at a boil, I removed the gravy from the heat and poured it across the breaded pork chops. The chops baked for 45 minutes at 400. At the same time I roasted some asparagus drizzled with olive oil and salt & pepper. I also boiled a package of spaetzle, which is German egg noodles. Everything came out great. In the final photo, some people put the mushroom gravy over the noodles, but I did not simply to show off the noodles. Dirty Nails

Looks great, where's the red cabbage :)

I also boiled a package of spaetzle,
Have you tried making the spaetzle from scratch? It's better than the packaged stuff and is so easy to make. We have a spaezle maker, but you can use a colander or a number of things you've already got lying around your kitchen.

Wow!! That looks really good!! Never been to Germany but there's a really nice German / Bavarian restaurant in Fredericksburg that I love to go to. Fell in love with the spaetzle my very first time there and make sure to get it whenever I go back. Great looking meal!!

Looks great. Been such a long time since I made schnitzels. This may be the push I needed.

I was stationed at 1/59 ADA in Wackernheim. Not too far away from Ramstein Airbase.

Thanks....

Ha! I'm making a rice, red cabbage, and ground beef dish tonight. I've never tried making spaetzle, perhaps I'll try though.

I was stationed in San Antonio for three years and we visited Fredericksburg three times and ate at the Bavarian restaurant each time. That area is so scenic and friendly. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Steve! I have to ask, when were you there and what was your MOS/AFSC? I ask simply because when I joined this forum in January I thought your photo looked familiar.

Nope, I served from 1996 through this summer. Same sort of job though. My wife just pointed out who your photo reminds us of. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

New to me but I'm sure I could handle that plate and be called a newbie.
