This colorful slaw is a fresher and faster version of the classic German long-cooked red cabbage. We serve it with pork, but it also makes a nice cool-weather side with simply cooked chicken or steak.
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 bone-in pork chops (7 oz. each)
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon pepper, divided
2 tablespoons butter
4 cups sliced red cabbage
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup sliced red onion
1 green apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
2 carrots, shredded
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Season pork chops with 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, until browned but still slightly pink in center, 5 minutes total. Transfer to a plate, tent with foil, and let rest.
Melt butter in the same pan. Cook cabbage, bell pepper, onion, apple, and carrots until just starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Mix in vinegar, sugar, and remaining 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Serve with pork chops.

I only made the cabbage - served with a grilled pork tenderloin. I made a few changes, but I don't think they really mattered. Used regular onion (didn't have a red one), used a yellow pepper instead of red and I substituted green beans for the carrots. I had some late season beans from the farmers market, but no carrots. I cut them in half lengthwise so they would cook. To cut fat I used a teaspoon of canola oil and a teaspoon of butter instead of the butter called for. I did cover to cook and near the end added two tablespoons of water to finish. I cooked longer than 5 minutes. It was delicious.
The pork chops were quite moist, but the real winner is the warm cabbage slaw. This is one of the most colorful, delicious recipes we have ever made. We made the recipe exactly as presented and served it with couscous. The only change we could suggest would be to give the slaw a different name.
