1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until just crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and drain off all but 2 Tbsp. fat. (If there is not enough fat, add olive oil to measure 2 Tbsp.)
2. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle cutlets with salt and dredge in flour. Working in batches if necessary, add cutlets to skillet in a single layer and cook until browned on both sides, turning once, 4 to 6 minutes total. Remove to a platter; tent with foil. Repeat with remaining pork.
3. Add cabbage, onion and thyme to skillet; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in sugar and vinegar, reduce heat to low and continue to cook until cabbage is tender, about 5 minutes longer, stirring once or twice. Spoon cabbage over pork, sprinkle with bacon and serve.
