Ingredients

How to make it

  • Season chops with salt and pepper and brown in oil in large Dutch oven.
  • Remove chops.
  • Put onions in the pot with 1/4 cup water.
  • Scrape bottom of pot to release any browned bits.
  • The onions need to be caramelized to mahogany finish, 30 - 40 minutes.
  • When onions are ready add garlic, black pepper,salt and parsley.
  • Mix thoroughly and cook until you smell the garlic, about 1 minute.
  • Add tomato sauce and 1/2 cup water.
  • Put 1 1/2 heads sliced cabbage into pot but DO NOT STIR.
  • Place chops on top of cabbage, turn heat to medium low and cover pot.
  • Allow cabbage and chops to "smother" for about 20 minutes.
  • Open the lid, stir and add the remaining 1/2 head of cabbage.
  • There should be a rapidly boiling 1 to 2" of juice at the bottom of the pot.
  • Add water is necessary.
  • Replace the lid and "smother" 15 to 20 minutes more.
  • Stir cabbage and pork, cover and smother another 15 minutes.
  • Taste cabbage and adjust seasonings to taste.
  • The first cabbage in should be wilted but not mushy.
  • The second cabbage should be cooked but still have texture.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • The cabbage will continue to cook so err on the side of under-cooking it.
  • Serve the cabbage and its juices over steamed rice.
  • Serve chops to the side.

    Well, km, I might just go with a big loaf of rustic bread with this one. Maybe boiled potatoes would be another option. Whatever you decide, enjoy it!

    I can't imagine that it couldn't be done in a crockpot, Barb. I'd just be sure to check its liquid every so often. Enjoy!

    I must try this. I love cabbage too. I don't understand why it has gotten such a bad rap overt he years. It's one of my favorite vegetables.
