Florentine Pork With Spiced Red Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

Hopefully will have red cabbage to reap from the garden soon so looking out for recipes so I am saving this one here, from Australian Delicious. Times estimated. Please note french trimmed is were the fat is scraped off to expose the bone and sort of becoming a handle, great in smaller cuts of meats such as lamb as an appertizer. Have not included marinating time and within the cooking time you are cooking the cabbage while te pork is in the oven and overall times are estimated.
