Delicious way to fix pork chops. I came across this recipe in my mothers recipe box. I'm guessing that she must have gotten it from a friend, while living in Germany. I recently tried it and love it. It's a wonderful combination of flavors. Will definitely be making again.
In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until browned and crisp. Pour out all but 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings and add olive oil to skillet. Set skillet aside. Save bacon.
Season the pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon
salt; dredge pork chops in flour. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook on both sides until browned, about 8 minutes.
Remove chops from skillet and set aside.
Add onion and garlic to skillet. Cook, stirring until onions soften,
about 3 minutes. Add carrots, cabbage, bay leaves, cider, apples, remaining 1 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir well to combine, cover and bring to a boil. Uncover pan and add pork chops on top of cabbage mixture. Recover and return to boil.
Reduce heat to medium and cook until chops are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Chop reserved bacon coarsely and sprinkle over pork and cabbage. Before serving, remove the bay leaves.
murray_thetrees 2y agoDelicious and easy. I added some fennel seeds based on previous reviews of being a bit bland, seems to have added good flavour.
Smharaway 3y agoWe really liked this recipe and I will definitely make it again. I used very little olive oil and pork tenderloin sliced 1/2 inch thick which made this low fat.
JSchaef5 4y agoVery good. Could use a bit more spice but most German food is a bit bland. I love that you only use one pan! I would make this again.
