Pork Chops with apples and Cabbage

Baked Pork Chops and Apples
2 Tablespoons butter
6 Pork chops
4 Apples
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

Peel, core, and slice the apples.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in a skillet.
Brown the pork chops on both sides in the butter.
Grease (or spray) a large baking dish.
Put the apple slices in the bottom of the dish.
Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the apples.
Place the pork chops on top of the apples.
Cover with foil and bake for 1 and 1/2 hours.

Cabbage and Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 Tablespoon canola oil
8 Cups shredded green cabbage (about 1 normal-sized head)
1 Tablespoon packed brown sugar
3-4 Garlic cloves, minced (I use 4)
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
Fresh ground black pepper

In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat; add cabbage, garlic and brown sugar to pan.
Sauté until the cabbage is limp, about 5 minutes or so.
Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in vinegar.
Cook, stirring very often, for approximately 20 minutes; taste and if cabbage is too crunchy for you, continue to cook for a few more minutes.
Add salt, pepper to taste, and serve.

This was very yummy the apples we used were granny smith and we served over rice. With half of a Cabbage we cut this in half and tried it. It may have been a little much with both dishes made with brown sugar but both were good. Both found on recipe zaar.
