This pork chops with cabbage and bacon is an amazingly easy one pan meal that is rich and delicious. Post may contain affiliate links.
I don’t know about you, but I can think of nothing better to accompany pork is more pork. Apparently Martha agrees with me, because this Pork Chops with Cabbage and Bacon Recipe from One Pot: 120+ Easy Meals from Your Skillet, Slow Cooker, Stockpot, and More is absolutely to die for!! It wasn’t easy to get an attractive photo of it, but looks aside, this was amazing! I forgot that when you cook whole milk in the oven, it turns into something so creamy and almost cheesy (think of scalloped potatoes). Then when you add bits of crispy bacon floating in that creamy goodness, swoon. Seriously.
This was the second recipe that I tried from my new Martha Stewart book, I mentioned the Baked Rice with Sausage and Broccoli on Monday. By the time you read this, I will have probably made even more. This is my kind of cooking…simple, easy, one pot (oh and and bacon and pork chops!).
Pork Chops with Bacon and Cabbage
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 bone-in pork chops 1 inch thick
- salt and black pepper
- 4 strips of bacon coarsely chopped
- 1 yellow onion cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 1 head green cabbage about 2 1/2 pounds cut into 8 wedges
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 cups whole milk
- Preheat the oven to 400. Take a large roasting pan and set it over two burners. Heat the oil on high to medium high. Season the chops with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Brown on one side for about 5 minutes (do not disturb them you want a nice brown crust). Turn them over and brown on the other side about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
- Reduce the heat to medium. Add the bacon and cook until it's crispy, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook until it's softened, about 6 minutes. Add the cabbage and cook on one side until starting to brown, about 6 minutes. Turn and cook about 3 minutes on the other side. Add the flour and stir to coat everything. Add the milk, stirring constantly until it's thickened a bit, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and nestle the chops back in between the cabbage wedges. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
