Spiced Pork Chops With Red Cabbage and Raisins


I have made this a few times now because it's very delicious and super simple. It's a great weeknight dinner. I use cider vinegar in place of red wine vinegar because I always have it on hand and I prefer the taste. It seems quite healthy too! I think it's my favorite recipe that I've made from Real Simple.
