If you didn’t grow up with a family recipe for pork chops, well, we’re sorry. Here’s a heart-healthy version with all the elements from our childhoods: pork, apples, red cabbage, and potatoes. Sublime. Baby red potatoes make an excellent side dish. —Susan E. Levy
4-ounce lean pork chops without bone

In This Recipe
Brown pork chops lightly in hot olive oil, about two minutes each side. Transfer to a plate, set aside.
Add cabbage, thyme, cider, and broth to pan. Bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce to simmer, stirring occasionally until wilted, 2-3 minutes.
Add apples in a single layer and top with the pork chops.
Cover and cook on medium heat until the pork chops are tender but not dry, about 8-10 minutes.
