Autumn Pork Chop Dinner

The Toddster is a real meat and potatoes man.  I could serve him meat and potatoes every night of the week and there would be no complaints from him!

He loves a pork chop more than anything else.  We aren't real big eaters of red meat, but when it comes right down to it, if he had his choice, he would pick a pork chop over a steak every time!

I, on the other hand, would rather have a steak.  With a baked potato and a salad on the side.  That is my heaven.

This is a beautiful one dish bake that is perfectly sized for two people.  

Layers of cabbage, potato, green beans  are put into a baking dish, and then topped with pan browned chops.  Apple juice is poured over all . . . 

You then cover it tightly and bake it for a time  . . .  uncover, sprinkle with buttered bread crumbs and bake it for a little while longer to brown the crumbs.

The end result is flavourful, fork tender pork chops  . . .  succulent.  I like to use old fashioned bone in chops . . .

I use frozen whole green beans and this keeps them from over cooking too much.  They are just right.  I cut my potatoes about 1/4 inch thick. They absorbe the meat juices and the apple juice, and that cabbage at the bottom  . . . wow

I adore cabbage and do does Pork. Pork and cabbage are beautiful partners.  The whole dish, with everything put together is simply marvelous! Whenever I cook this, Todd is one very happy camper!
