Prepare the ingredients & make the apple topping:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the apple topping:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Thinly slice the chives. Grate the apple on the large side of a box grater, discarding the core. Place half the grated apple in a bowl. Add the sliced chives and half the vinegar; stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Brown the pork:
2 Brown the pork:

While the apple marinates, pat the pork dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

To the pan of reserved fond, add the sliced onion and cabbage  and 2 tablespoons of water. Season with salt and pepper. Cook   on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Finish & serve your dish:
4 Finish & serve your dish:

Add the broth, remaining grated apple, and remaining vinegar to the pan. Stir to combine. Top with the browned pork. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook, without stirring, 4 to 6 minutes, or until most of the liquid has cooked off. Remove the foil. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the pork is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Transfer the cooked pork to a cutting board and let rest at least 3 minutes. Slice the rested pork crosswise. Serve the finished vegetables topped with the sliced pork and apple topping. Enjoy!
