This is what Papa requested for his Valentine Day dinner. As you can see it was a low calorie meal.
What is it?
Breaded pork loin chops with caramelized onions
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage
Cauliflower and green beans
Yes, I spent Sunday afternoon cooking but, it was totally worth it!
We love sweet and sour red cabbage. My grandma used to make it when I was a kid. (I hated it then) Papa's grandma always made it too. Both of our grandmothers were German and this is a big German dish.
2 TBS. Butter
1/2 of an onion, chopped
1 medium head of red cabbage, shredded
1 small tart apple, thinly sliced
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
In large saucepan, melt butter. Add onion, saute until tender. Add remaining ingredients. Stir to combine. Cover, simmer 45 minutes Stirring occasionally.
Mmmm Mmmm Good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
