Apricot-Glazed Pork with Potatoes and Cabbage
Make this one-dish wonder of a meal in less than half an hour. Tender pork loin glazed with apricot preserves and speckled with paprika; cooked and served on the same platter with cabbage and potatoes.
1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon butter
3 cups shredded cabbage
1 pound boneless pork loin roast, thinly sliced
1 pound potatoes, scrubbed and cut into matchsticks
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 tablespoon brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon paprika
- Place onion and butter on a large, microwave-safe platter. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes or until the onion is slightly softened. Add cabbage; toss to coat. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, turning back one edge to vent; microwave on HIGH for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cabbage is soft. Push the cabbage mixture to the center and arrange pork strips decoratively around it. Place potatoes in a ring outside the pork. Season vegetables, pork and meat with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl combine apricot jam, brown mustard and paprika. Drizzle over the pork. Microwave, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until the pork is no longer pink and the potatoes are tender.
