from The Yellow Farmhouse Cookbook

4 pork chops, about 1 inch thick
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium red onion, sliced (about 2 cups)
1/4 head red cabbage, sliced (about 5 cups)
1 firm apple such as Granny Smith, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 cup chicken broth, homemade preferred
1 teaspoon caraway
1 tablespoon sugar
Place an ovenproof pan or dish in oven and heat oven to 250 degrees. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Season chops with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil to pan and when hot, add the chops and brown well, 1 minute per side. The chops should be nicely browned. Place chops in the preheated ovenproof dish, cover tightly, and place in the heated oven for 14 minutes.
Meanwhile, lower heat under the skillet to medium. Add the chopped onion and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 to 7 minutes or until translucent and soft. Add the cabbage and apple and stir to combine with the onion. Add the vinegar, and using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. Add the chicken broth and cook until the cabbage is soft, about 6 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt, pepper, caraway, and sugar. Stir to combine and cook another minute or two. Serve at once with the chops.
