So I got the new issue of Real Simple magazine and of course I found a few recipes that I wanted to tweak, and this is one of them. I am not a big fan of pork chops, but the picture of this recipe in the magazine was gorgeous and just looked really good, so I decided to try it out. The pork has a great spice and very juicy. I must say I am wanting to cook with pork chops more often after eating this great meal. It is a very healthy and hearty meal. Perfect for this time of year.

Adapted from Real Simple

1/2 yellow onion, sliced
1/4 small head red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the pork with the cumin, poultry seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and cook until browned and cooked through, 6-8 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a second large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, until softened,3 to 4 minutes. Add the cabbage, raisins, vinegar, 1/8 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, covered, tossing occasionally, until just tender, 6-8 minutes, stir in the parsley, Serve with the pork.
