Pork Chop One Dish Dinner

I serve it with salad, soup and bread. The apple juice gives the pork a wonderful flavor, and the cabbage taste isn't too strong. 

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours MAKES: 8 servings

1/3       cup all-purpose flour, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
8         boneless pork loin chops (1/2-inch thick and 4 ounces each)
1/4     cup butter, cubed
2        cups apple juice
2        pounds small red potatoes
1        pound or 1 jar (16 ounces) small whole onions, drained
1        pound carrots, cut into 3-inch pieces
6        cups shredded cabbage

1 .  In a large resealable plastic bag, place 1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper; add pork chops. Seal bag; toss to coat. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown chops in butter on both sides. 
2 .  Remove pork chops; set aside and keep warm.
3 .  Stir remaining flour into pan drippings until blended. 
4 .  Gradually whisk in apple juice. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
5 .  Return chops to pan; add the potatoes, onions and carrots. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
6 .  Top with cabbage; cover and bake for 50-60 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and vegetables are tender, basting occasionally with juices.
