When selecting pork chops, they should be pinkish in color without any dark spots on the fat. You can store them in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days before cooking. Go ahead and cook a double batch, and you’ll have great leftovers for lunch the next day. Cabbage is usually sold by the head, which can be a big quantity when you’re cooking for just yourself. Some stores sell half heads; if yours doesn’t, ask a clerk to cut one for you. Or buy a bag of preshredded cabbage and, later in the week, you can make a different slaw from what’s left.
