Nancy's Pork and Cabbage

User Rating 5 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


From Nancy: This recipe was handed down through my family. My best guess is that it is a Danish dish, since I am only second generation in this country.


  • pork chops or pork loin roast
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1 head cabbage


Pork and Brown Cabbage is the easiest thing to make and delicious. I use either a pork loin roast or loin chops. Either works. First, I season the pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then I brown the chops in a heavy pot until very brown, but not burnt. This is key since the cabbage will get its color and flavor from the carmelization of the pork. After pork is sufficiently brown on all sides, I take a head of green cabbage, core it, and cut it into eighths. Lower heat to med-low to low, add cabbage and a little more salt, cover and simmer for 1 hour. Stir,keep simmering and stirring until pork is falling apart and cabbage in brown and totally wilted. Serve with bread and homemade applesauce. trust me this is delicious.
Thanks to Nancy Whiteley for sharing this family favorite.

So simple, but so delicious. Browning the pork first really adds flavor. I found I had only two pork chops, so I added 4 sweet Italian sausages. Seasoned with some celery salt. My family LOVED it. Yummy, we'll be making this again soon!
