Very good did not have as much taste as I thought it would but I would make it again. I only used two pork chops so there were too many apples, it might have been ok with 4 chops. I added garlic while frying the pork chops. The pork chops were very tender and the cabbage extreamly good. Make this with Tasty Chickpeas # 57659 as a side dish they really go well together.
