Pork chops, cabbage and apples are as natural a combination as peanut butter, jelly and bread. The mild, meaty flavor of the pork chops marries scrumptiously with braised cabbage, its natural sweetness highlighted by the flavor of sautéed apples. Thanks to the recipe below, you can master this fall dish, which comes together in just one pan.
The secret to perfection with the recipe is cooking the cabbage. Braised for just long enough, it becomes silky soft and buttery without taking on any of that sulfurous quality of overcooked cruciferous veggies. A touch of bacon and butter adds a luxurious quality to the finished dish, ideal for a cool autumn evening.
