Baked Pork Chops w/Apples and Cabbage

This dish is delicious with the sweetness of apples harmonizing with the cabbage and pork; absorbing all the good flavors.

It can be a one-pot meal if that’s what you like, or after browning the chops, assemble all in a baking dish.

I prepared the pork and accompaniments in an ovenproof paella pan; cast iron would be fine too.  To avoid drying out, it may be necessary to add more stock during baking.  However, do not add too much; or, excluding the pork, all will turn to mush.

It’s a good dinner for this time of year, and I will be adding a little caraway seed the next time!

Oh, mashed potatoes on the side would be a wonderful thing!

Baked Pork Chops w/Apples and Cabbage


1 tablespoon butter
3-4 boneless loin pork chops
1/3 cup unsalted chicken stock
3 tablespoons cooking sherry
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 medium onion, sliced
1 small head cabbage, large chop
2 large Honeycrisp apples, cored and sliced


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat, add butter, swirling until it melts.
Add pork chops to pan and cook for 3 minutes per side, until browned.
Remove from pan and set aside.
In skillet, stir together next 5 ingredients, through pepper.
Add onion, cabbage and apples, combining well.
Return chops to skillet, cover and transfer to oven.
Roast for about 1 hour, until apples and cabbage are tender and pork has reached desired doneness.
Add more liquid, if needed, as it bakes.



  1. I love these porks chops with apples Pam, many times I dont eat pork chops, the men would love this plate!

    1. Thanks, Gloria! The apples are great!

  2. Dear Pam, I do love pork. I like it cooked in every variety!! The pork with apples brings back good memories. My mom always made pork with apples and if she did not use the fresh apples it was applesauce on the side. Looks good! Stay well and happy and warm. xoxo Catherine p.s. I keep looking for the spring!!!

  4. Great minds think alike (KINDA)....your recipe looks much better than mine. I didn't add apples to my pork chops and I cooked Kale instead of cabbage. Hope your weather is getting better...

  6. Pam, Good eats, that's for sure! I love pork chops...all pork for that matter. This dish is even halfway healthy if I leave out those mashed potatoes on the side! I'm ready for dinner now... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
