Delicious; a lovely meat-potato-vegetable combination that with a fruit side or dessert, is a perfectly balanced meal. Rather than using full-sized potatoes, I used mixed baby potatoes from the farmers market--purple, red, yukon gold and fingerling--and just halved them. My butter for the cabbage inadvertently got to be browned butter but I think that added to the depth of flavors. My (boneless) pork chops were fork tender and juicy! I'm delighted I tried this recipe.

Garlic, pork & wine....what more can you ask for LOL. Very good blend of flavours. I didn't have any garlic cloves so used 1 heaped desertspoon of crushed garlic from a jar. This worked well. A keeper for us :) Made for Aus/NZ swap March 2009
