Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (1 inch thick)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 strips bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 head green cabbage (about 2 1/2 pounds), cored and cut into 8 wedges
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Set a large heavy roasting pan across two burners over high heat; add oil and heat. Season pork with salt and pepper; brown on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add bacon; cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Add onion; cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add cabbage, cut side down, and cook until light golden, about 6 minutes. Flip and cook until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Add flour and stir until coated. Add milk and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then nestle pork chops in sauce. Transfer pan to oven. Bake until pork is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

    The flavors were pretty great from the bacon, and I LOVED the cabbage, but there was way too much flour and milk for me. It was just too thick. Next time, I'm going to cut it down to 1 tbsp of flour, and one cup of milk with one or two cups water. Also, my pork chops were kind of tough and chewy. Not sure if it's just the quality of chops I buy. How can I tell what's good? It's just labeled pork chop at the supermarket =\

    The flavor was good but the milk looked curdled so it didn't look very appetizing.

    I have made this a number of times! We love it!!! I always add a couple honey crisp apples prior to popping it in the oven...yum! I serve with mashed potatoes. Comfort food overload!

    In a family of picky eaters, everyone ate this one (some skipped the cabbage). The recipe calls for a season of salt and pepper right before transferring to the oven. I skipped this step for fear of over salting with the bacon. I should have followed the recipe, because the sauce needed it.

    This meal was a hit! My husband licked his plate clean and he doesn't even really like cooked cabbage. I used 2 cups non-fat milk and 1 cup half

    Yummy comfort food! I substituted very thick (~2") boneless chops and just cooked longer. I might use less cabbage next time.

    switched out the milk for corn soup and used gluten free flour, for an awesome gf/df dinner!

    We added two cored Fuji apples. This is a fabulous dish - you will have to bake it longer - but what a win. I am passing this along to my family.
