Ingredients

Directions

In a large resealable plastic bag, mix together 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, chile powder, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper, to taste. Add half the can of tomatoes (reserve the remaining tomatoes for the Round 2 Recipe Beef and Bean Burritos). Add the pork chops, seal, and mix everything together. Put the bag into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

Heat your outdoor grill or a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Remove the chops from the marinade and grill on medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side. Pour the marinade into a saucepan, bring to boil, and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

While the pork chops are cooking, make the cabbage. Shred half the head of cabbage (reserve remaining half for Round 2 Recipe Beef and Bean Burrito). In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. When it is hot, add the cabbage and cook until it starts to wilt, about 3 minutes. Then add the vinegar, brown sugar, and salt, to taste. Stir it well and cook until the cabbage is completely wilted and just tender, about 5 minutes.

Serve the pork chops on top of the cabbage and top with the cooked marinade. (Reserve 1 pork chop for the Online Round 2 Recipe Pork and Cornbread Bites.)

Pairs well with Cabernet Sauvignon
