Pork Chops With Cabbage and Apples

"I found this recipe in a book from Hearts and Tummies Cookbook Co. called "Adaptable Apple." It can almost be a one-dish meal, and the flavors all go well together. My suggestion is to first season the pork chops however you like. The first time I made this I forgot to do that."

  1. This was good but we found that the apples were not cooked enough for our tastes. We did like the flavours which did compliment the pork chops. I used boneless and pounded seasoning into them before cooking them on the grill. Thanks for posting; the combination of veggies/fruit did go well with the pork.
  2. Made this dish according to the directions. It was ok, but I thing something was laking in the cabbage dish. Needed a little more punch of sweetness and, maybe, a little bit of oil to improve the flavor binding to the cabbage. I do another cabbage dish with thiny sliced onions and cumin seeds that I prefer to this one. Or maybe the white sweet potatoes I served as a side overshadowed the cabbage and apples.
  3. Have'nt tried this yet but this one is a MUST DO.
  4. Very good recipe! Quick, easy and nutritious. My BF also liked it, even though when I told him what I was making he made a face. I did use 1/2 golden raisins and 1/2 dried cranberries because I couldn't find my raisins and had to pick them out of trail mix, but it tasted great!
  5. This was a delicious dish. The apple, cabbage, and pork go great together; the tastes and textures really complement each other. In fact, the apple and cabbage add enough flavor, that seasoning is not crucial. If you go out apple-picking, this is a great use of your bounty.


I am a Spanish teacher and my favorite thing to cook is a slow baked Lima bean casserole with herbs de provence. I also love cooking dairy-free with cashew cream.
