HONEY MUSTARD PORK CHOPS AND BALSAMIC BRAISED CABBAGE

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen® Avocado Oil
  • 1 yellow onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, halved, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen® Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1 cup hard cider
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 head purple cabbage , cored and finely shredded
  • 4 pork chops
  • Primal Kitchen® Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)

 

 

Instructions

For the balsamic-braised cabbage...
  • Warm up the Primal Kitchen® Avocado Oil in a large fry pan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and a pinch of salt. Sauté until the onion is soft and translucent (5 to 7 minutes).
  • Add the honey to the fry pan,  and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add the apple slices and Primal Kitchen® Balsamic Vinaigrette, increase the heat to medium-high, and use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Bring the liquid to a boil, then add the hard cider and 1 cup water.
  • Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Return the liquid to a boil, and then immediately reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer the pan for about 10 minutes, or until the liquid begins to reduce.
  • Add the cabbage. Using tongs, toss to coat well with the liquid in the pan.
  • Cover the pan, and cook all the ingredients for about 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage begins to wilt.
  • Uncover the pan and continue cooking the cabbage for roughly 25 to 30 minutes longer until it's tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Add an extra pinch of salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the orange zest.
  • Transfer the cabbage to a warmed bowl and serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!
For the pork chops...
  • Marinate the pork chops in Primal Kitchen® Honey Mustard Vinaigrette for 30 minutes.
  • Grill to perfection.
  • Enjoy!
