Recipe by Steve P.
A Spirited rendition of Pork Potatoes and Cabbage with a nice meld of flavors enhanced by the wee bit of Apple Jack in the recipe. I would serve it with a Merlot (Red Merlot sometimes called Merlot Noir) or a Cabernet Sauvignon. If it were being served at a very casual affair you could also go with an apple wine, but for a more formal diner I stand with my above suggestions.
- 1 lb pork tenderloin, cleaned,quartered and pounded
- 1 cup seasoned flour
- 3 tablespoons melted butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1 cup julienned onion
- 1 cup diced mushroom
- 2 ounces apple jack

- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 lb shredded red cabbage
- 1⁄4 lb diced bacon
- 1 apple, cored peeled and diced
- 2 ounces cider vinegar
- 2 1⁄2 lbs peeled cooked and shredded potatoes
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
