Pork Chops with Cabbage and Potatoes

This is my spin on a one-dish meal ~ potatoes, cabbage and pork chops; all thrown together, with no “cream of ??? soup!”

I relish the taste of caraway seeds; you know:  the little brownish seeds that are in rye bread, giving it that unique flavor.  The small, sort of tannish-brown, caraway seeds taste similar to anise, only milder; sweet, but a little sharp.  It is said to be used in Europe longer than any other herb.  

I hope you try this recipe!  It makes for a great dinner on these chilly evenings we’re still having!

Pork Chops with Cabbage and Potatoes


4 pork chops
1-2 tablespoons oil
1 small head cabbage, large chop
4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 onion, sliced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
Paprika, sprinkled


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet, brown pork chops on both sides in a small amount of oil; set aside.
Place cabbage in the bottom of a baking dish.
Add a layer of potatoes and onions over the cabbage.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the broth and flour.
Add caraway seeds and stir.
Place chops on top of cabbage and potatoes.
Pour broth over top and cover with foil.
Bake for 1 hour, remove foil to let chops brown.
Bake for another 30 minutes or until chops are tender.

Bon Appetite!

  1. I adore caraway seeds with pork. They're so good together. The pork chops look absolutely wonderful and with the cabbage... YUM.

  2. My mother always cooked pork chops low and slow like this. I did some thin ones high and fast last night (after brining for 3 hours). They were good, but you have given me a craving for the cabbage, potatoes and the caraway.

  3. Michael, I so agree about the caraway! Thanks!

    jose manuel, gracias!

    Stephen, this combo of ingredients is great and easy to make too!

  7. Great looking chops and cabbage dish and the caraway seeds seem like a perfect touch! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  8. We adore pork chops at our house, this is a new way to make them that I will have to try...looks amazing

  9. Pam, Nice twist on pork chops with everything in one dish. Love pork, potatoes and cabbage. The caraway seeds are a nice touch. Thanks and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  10. YUM ... I love it that there is no cream of anything soup.


  11. Pam! why your so great?
    hahah! thumbs up for the post, i really cant deny it.

  12. Caraway seeds and pork were meant for each other, don't you think?
    This dish looks and sounds delicious, Pam!

  13. Looks really good! I always have caraway seeds in my pantry for making breads but I don't think I've ever used it in savory dishes. Will have to give it a try one of these days.

  14. Joao, thank you! It's nice to meet you and I'm so glad you stopped by!

    CCS, of course you can! There's always room for more at the table. ;)

    Claudia, they're really good! And I hope you have a good day!

    Marguerite, I think the taste of caraway seeds is great, esp. with pork and in slaw.

    MaryBeth, hope you like it as much as we do.

    Dave, thanks! I really like pork chops and am always on the lookout for new recipes for them.

    Glenda, great! I'm not into cream of anything soup too much. Remember that green bean casserole that appears every Thanksgiving?

    Jenn, you got it! Pretty tasty seeds in a lot of dishes!

  15. Biren, hope you try the seeds for great flavor in meat and potato dishes. I love lots of caraway seeds in dark breads!

  16. Love one pot meal and especially when there is no soup; saving this one; thank you Pam.

  17. HI Pam,
    Delicious plate of food. I love caraway seeds and the "minty" flavour they give to food.

  18. HI Pam,
    Delicious plate of food. I love caraway seeds and the "minty" flavour they give to food.

  19. Hi PAm really look awesome and tasty!

  20. This looks delicious! Really flavourful with the caraway seeds! And the cabbage and potatoes are perfect for a satisfying meal!

  21. Wow, you always amaze me with your work, very impressive.

  22. This is my idea of comfort food, Pam. I love the flavor of caraway in beef and pork dishes. It reminds me of my grandmother's cooking.

  23. I have all the ingredients in the house, dinner for Friday, thanks Pam. Diane

  24. It's always surprising to hear how much nutritional value some herbs/seeds have. My mom always put caraway seeds in her sauerkraut and pork roast. This sounds somewhat similar and it's making me hungry!

  25. I didn't know caraway was the monogamy spice, lol. Great meal!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
