Author Notes: 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 4-ounce lean pork chops without bone
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small head red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
