Preparation Notes

MacIntosh, Gala and Granny Smith apples are good cooking apples and will hold their shape after baking.


  1. Heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the finely sliced cabbage, onion, and apple in the bottom of a 4-quart casserole or Dutch oven.
  3. Heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Add pork ribs and cook until browned, about 6 to 8 minutes, turning to brown each side.
  5. Remove pork and place over cabbage. Pour off fat.
  6. Combine vinegar and brown sugar in a small bowl. Add to pan, stirring to remove browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Pour over ribs and cabbage.
  7. Cover and bake 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 155°F, pork is tender and cabbage is cooked.
