Savory and Sweet: Braised Pork Chops with Cabbage and Apples

Braising is a cooking technique that involves searing meat and then simmering it in liquid until tender and flavorful. In this recipe, we combine the savory flavors of pork chops with the sweetness of cabbage and apples for a delicious and satisfying meal.


– 4 bone-in pork chops
– Salt and pepper
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 onion, diced
– 2 cloves of garlic, minced
– 1 small head of cabbage, thinly sliced
– 2 apples, cored and sliced
– 1 cup chicken broth
– 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
– 1 tablespoon brown sugar
– 1 teaspoon dried thyme


1. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear until browned on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set aside.

2. In the same skillet, add the diced onion and minced garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the sliced cabbage and apples to the skillet and cook until the cabbage is slightly wilted, about 5 minutes.

3. Pour in the chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, and dried thyme. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Return the pork chops to the skillet, nestling them into the cabbage and apple mixture.

4. Cover the skillet with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through and tender.

5. Serve the braised pork chops with cabbage and apples hot, garnished with fresh thyme leaves, if desired.
