If you’re looking for something new to serve as a side dish this Light Sauteed Cabbage and Apples is perfect! I was getting so tired of the same old vegetable side dish so I decided to try something new. I’ve always loved sauteed cabbage. Of course that was when I “sauteed” (fried) it in bacon drippings. HA! Yep, that’s some good eats or OKIE FOOD! Awww….those were the days when I didn’t have to worry about eating bacon.
By adding apple cider, mustard and a splash of vinegar I’ve created a flavorful dish without adding tons of calories. Making sauteed cabbage my way comes in at only 85 calories for ONE WHOLE CUP! Serve this Light Sauteed Cabbage and Apples with my Pork Chops with Spicy Apple Mustard Sauce.
