These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

Prepare the ingredients & marinate the apple
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the apple

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. 

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. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

3 Cook the vegetables

To the pan of reserved fond, add the sliced onion, sliced cabbage, and 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. 

4 Finish & serve your dish

To the pan, add the broth, remaining grated apple, and remaining vinegar; 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 and continue to 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. Let rest at least 5 minutes. Once rested, slice crosswise. Serve the finished vegetables topped with the sliced pork and marinated apple (discarding any liquid). Enjoy!

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.
