Serves 4 (serving size: 4 oz. pork, 3/4 cup cabbage)

This modern twist on hearty German fare gets a fiber boost from savoy cabbage and a crunchy-tart finish from cranberries and almonds. Be sure to let the pork rest atop the cabbage mixture; the juices infuse it with rich, meaty flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Thinly slice scallions; divide green and white parts.

Step 2

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over high. Sprinkle pork evenly with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet; roast at 400°F until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145°F, 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 3

While pork roasts, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet; heat over medium-high. Add white parts of scallions; cook, stirring constantly, until translucent, about 1 minute. Add cabbage; cook, stirring often, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; add cranberries. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in vinegar, remaining 3/8 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Remove from heat, and cover to keep warm.

Step 4

Place pork on cabbage in skillet; let stand 5 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board; slice. Stir pork juices in skillet into cabbage until well combined. Sprinkle cabbage with sliced almonds and green parts of scallions. Serve with sliced pork.
