Nani's Cabbage Soup~ From The Kitchen Of StoneGable

My grandmother made this soup on top of the stove. It had that old world, cooked all day flavor and goodness. I have tweaked Nani's recipe to suite my busy lifestyle. I have a big slow cooker. Adjust the recipe to your slow cooker!

2 TBS vegetable oil

1 large yellow onion, chopped

1 large head of cabbage, rough chopped

salt and pepper

3-4 bone-in pork chops (I'm such a carnivore, 4 please!

water

1 can tomato soup

3 TBS butter

14 cup flour


In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat oil and add onions. Cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Put onions in the slow cooker.


Salt and pepper the pork chops.


In the same skillet brown pork chops on both sides and add to the slow cooker.


Add cabbage and add just enough water to cover the cabbage. Stir in a can of tomato soup. Put on the lid and cook on low for about 6 hours. You want the cabbage to be soft but not mushy.


Remove pork chops from the soup. Let cook a little and pull meat off the bone. Cut or shred into bite-size pieces.


In a large skillet melt butter. Add flour and combine into a paste. Cook on medium heat for 3 minutes. Take 2 cups of soup broth and add to the skillet to make a slurry. Whisk to incorporate. Let thicken a little and add to the slow cooker incorporating it well. Add the pork chop meat and cook on high for 30 minutes.

Serve with crusty bread.
