I always adapt this original recipe from nutritionist Melissa Diane Smith's book, "Going Against the Grain". It's a terrific recipe. I use a 9x13 pan, 4 chops, as much cabbage mix as will fit in the pan, and lots & lots of caraway. I haven't needed much water, I've found, but I always check anyway. This is so easy, you have to try it at least once! Maybe you'll love it! I do, which is why I make enough to have leftovers. : )

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  4. Place the shredded cabbage around the pork chops, sprinkle with the caraway seeds, and add 2 T of water.
  5. Bake, covered, for 1 hour.
  6. Halfway through, check dish and add more water if needed.

I didn't make the recipe as posted. For 8 servings I added 2 cored and sliced apples which I placed in the bottom of the baking dish. 1/2 cup of apple juice in place of the water. Then I added the browned pork chops...The cabbage... Then I sprinkled dried minced onions...garlic powder...and cararway seeds on the cabbage. It was very easy and my company enjoyed it.
