Red cabbage with pork chops and baked apples

It's stormy weather around here in Holland. And this is a great recipe for that weather! Spicy red cabbage with pork chops and baked apple. A delicious meal and it combines great with mashed potatoes!

Ingredients (4 persons):

Red cabbage

  • 100 grams sugar;
  •  90 grams butter
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt;
  • 2 apples, sour;
  • 1 big onion, chopped in eight pieces;
  • 750 grams red cabbage, chopped fine;
  • 120 mL apple cider vinegar;
  • 180 mL water.

Pork chops with baked apple

  • 4 pork chops;
  • tablespoons mustard;
  • 2 apples;
  • 40 grams butter;
  • 2 tablespoon oil and 2 tablespoons butter;
  • salt and pepper.

  • Baking plate.

Braised red cabbage
Melt the butter in a big pan on medium heat. Add sugar and salt and combine until the sugar is dissolved. Add the apples and onion and mix through the butter mixture, so everything is coated with butter. Spread the onion and apple in one layer on the bottom of the pan and leave to simmer for about 10 minutes on low heat. Ad water and apple cider vinegar and bring to a boil. Turn the heat low and simmer for 45 minutes. In that time put the lid on the pan, but make sure to leave a small space open, so the moisture can escape. Look after 30 minutes at the red cabbage. If it still contains a lot of moisture take of the lid in the last 15 minutes. Taste and add salt an pepper if necessary. Serve immediately.

Pork chops with apple
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Cut the apple in half and lay on the baking plate. Spread a lump of butter on the apple and sprinkle salt on top. Put 45 minutes in the oven.

Take the chops and rub every chop with 1 tablespoon of mustard. Heat a pan and pour in the oil and 2 tablespoons of butter. When the foam disappears put in the chops. Bake 8 minutes on each side, until they are beautifully browned.

Tips and tricks:
  • If you don't like your cabbage with lumps, use the blender after you put salt and pepper at taste;
  • A nice addition to the red cabbage are slices of baked bacon.
