Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Total Time:
55 min
10 min
45 min

about 2 cups

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 ounces diced bacon, raw
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 6 -ounce roasted pork loin, sliced into 1-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup fried leeks
  • 1/2 cup shallot reduction (veal reduction with julienned shallots)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon brunoise red pepper
  • In a large non-reactive saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, render the bacon until crispy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the bacon and drain on a paper-lined plate. Saute the onions and cabbage for 2 to 3 minutes in the bacon fat. Season with salt and pepper. Add the apples, vinegar, bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, allspice, and water and simmer for 3 minutes. Stir in the sugar to dissolve, about 2 minutes. Cover the pot and cook for 15 minutes. Turn up the heat and uncover. Continue to cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the bacon and parsley. Adjust the seasonings if needed. Plate a slice of the pork loin in the center of the plate. Alternate layering the cabbage and pork, until all the pork is used. Top the mille-feuille with the fried leeks and spoon the reduction around the plate. Garnish with chives and brunoise peppers.
