Tangy cider makes a delicious glaze for pork chops. It’s also fabulous over caraway-scented cabbage, apple and onions in this one-pan meal. You can buy already shredded red cabbage in the produce section of most grocery stores. Because the pork chops are small, they’ll cook quickly so be careful not to overcook them, which will make them tough.You could also make this dish with boneless, skinless chicken thighs. If you have any fresh parsley or green onion on hand, feel free to chop up a handful of either of them and sprinkle over the finished dish right before serving.
