This was a delicious recipe. I had no curdled milk and am surprised some others did. I only use 2% milk and true tablespoons of flour. The sauce came perfect. The pork chops were moist and tender. This would be great paired with some noodles. Next time .

So it wasn't a beautiful dish but the flavor was fantastic. I've made pork loin cooked in milk before and the milk protein does always seem to "curdle" a bit. In some sauces you can hit it with an immersion blender etc. but that would destroy the lovely cabbage texture in this dish! A great use of all of the cabbage coming from my CSA!

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.
