3 slices bacon, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 4-oz. pork cutlets or thin boneless chops
3 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar


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.
