Outstanding cabbage! Never thought I would say that about humble cabbage, but this truly is delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. When shimmering, add the bacon and saute until it begins to crisp. Add the onion and saute until soft, 5-8 minutes.
  3. Add the apple, salt and cabbage; continue to saute until the cabbage wilts, about 5 minutes. Add the cream, Dijon mustard and whole grain mustard; stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a very low simmer, and leave it to cook.
  4. Preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Liberally season pork chop with salt and pepper on both sides. When the pan is hot, add the chop and cook until a deep golden brown on both sides, 2-4 minutes each side. Transfer pan to oven and cook another 5-8 minutes, until the internal temperature is 150°F.
  5. Remove the chop to a plate, tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes to rest. Slice pork against the grain. Divide cabbage between two warmed plates, top each with half the pork, and serve.
