Pork and cabbage are easy to make and delicious. Nancy uses either a pork loin roast or loin chops.

Ingredients

Steps to Make It

  2. Season the pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

  3. In a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown the pork chops in the oil, turning to brown all sides. This is key since the cabbage will get its color and flavor from the caramelization of the pork. Work in batches if needed.

  4. After the pork is sufficiently brown on all sides, core a head of green cabbage and cut it into eight wedges.
