- 4 lbs pork, cut into cubes (boneless country-style ribs work well)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- garlic, to taste
- 3⁄4 cup apple cider
- 3⁄4 cup beef broth
- 1 medium head of cabbage, julienned
- 3 carrots, shredded
- 1⁄2 cup green onion
- 1 cup whipping cream
- Brown pork in oil/butter. Add seasonings. When pork is done remove it and deglaze the pan with the cider and broth. Bring to boil, scraping down the sides/bottom of the pan. Put meat back in and add cabbage. Simmer, covered, 40-60 minutes until pork is soft. By then your juices should be reduced by about half. If not, either add more apple cider or leave the lid off and raise heat to 'boil' off more liquid. Add carrots and onions and cook over low heat until soft.
- Finally add the whipping cream and heat through BUT do not boil. Adjust seasonings to taste.
How wonderful! I would only change the recipe either to say that the cabbage disappears when it's cooked for the requisite hour or to add only 1/4 of the cabbage in the beginning for thickening and then the rest of it at the end so it still exists. Either way, it's wonderful!
Really good! I was afraid it wouldn't have much flavor, but the sauce with broth, apple cider, and cream was all it needed. I had a large cabbage head, so it didn't all fit in the pot, but after it cooked for about 30 minutes, I was able to add the rest of the cabbage. As a result, some of the cabbage was more firm that the rest. It was good to have the texture variance. This goes into my Recipe Box! Thank you for posting.
I made this with the pork I had which was cut in small strips so my cooking time was a bit quicker but the recipe was the same. I really liked this as a nice change for dinner. As mine was cooked a bit quicker my cabbage and carrots were done to a treat. Thank you for posting. Made for Honor thy mother diabetic forum May 2011.
