*Disclaimer – This recipe was originally published in 2014. I’m working hard to update all my older recipes with recipe cards and additional recipe information, but getting to all of them will take time. Please bear with me. In the meantime let me assure you that this recipe is still a winner and one I’m sure you’ll be well pleased with when you make it at home.

This Pork and Cabbage Stew is something I actually posted a few years ago, but I haven’t made sense so I’m considering this a recipe redo.

I’ve only made a few small changes to the original recipe. I increased the amount of pork. I added some chopped celery.

I decreased the amount of cabbage I used (with the increase of meat, I didn’t have room for all the cabbage), and I changed out the type of oil I used to brown the meat.

I also modified the technique of putting it all together to make it a tad faster and easier…Other than that it’s basically still the same, and the taste is just good, if not better than I remember!

I'm so sorry that I forgot to add the word "cups" to the apple juice measurement. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Sharyn!
