Pretty purple cabbage is a perfect companion to pork chops (see my posts “Pork Chops and Apple Sauce” and “How to Make Pork Chops Tender”). Heat a few tablespoons of butter in a covered casserole (see my post “A Case for the Casserole”), and saute a peeled and chopped onion and apple. Slice a head of cabbage into thin ribbons and place on top. Sprinkle on some cider or sherry vinegar, salt, and sugar. Cover and place in a preheated 300-degree oven. Stir after 30 minutes, and continue to cook until soft.
