German Crock Pot Pork With Cabbage

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Tea Jenny

Red cabbage and pork are natural partners. The sweetness of the cabbage really complements the juicy savoury flavour of the pork roast. Posted for ZWT#6 2010

I love cabbage! Cooked, raw, red or green, I love it & it paired really well with the pork. I didn't have a shoulder thawed, but I did have a tenderloin that I could nuke-thaw and then get it cooking so it'd be ready when we got home from a baseball game last night. There just wasn't a flavor in this dish that didn't work. I think it may be a tad sweet for some people I know, but I thought that was balanced nicely by the cider vinegar. Since we used a tenderloin, the meat shredded easily and we were wishing we'd had rolls or buns to make sandwiches out of. This is a super easy & tasty dish that could be made for large crowds. The red cabbage took on the flavors of everything else, so I think even cabbage haters could eat this one. My toddler sure did! :) Thanks for posting, TJ! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes!
