  • Chop off sides of raw heads of cabbage, discarding the inner core and innermost core leaves. Slice into 2-3 inch pieces. Toss into unheated slow cooker. Core and slice apples into 6-8 pieces. Toss into cooker on top of cabbage. Chop and remove outer leaves and bulb from onions (inner bulb is what makes the tears start). Chop roughly and toss into slow cooker. Generously sprinkle sea salt and ground pepper on top. Seal with lid, and set timer on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
  • Remove all visible fat from pork loin slices. Create small slits all around cutlet to keep from turning upwards during cooking. Put into a Ziploc bag and pound meat until 1/4 inch thick. Set aside a place for flour (whole wheat is best), egg wash and bread crumbs. Coat each pounded pork cutlet with whole wheat flour, and set aside. When all are complete, return to first one and in chronological order, coat each resting cutlet with egg mixture. Allow excess to drip off, and transfer to bread crumbs plate. Coat generously with bread crumbs (bread crumb mixture can be a combination of b.c. (bread crumbs) & paprika, or b.c. & all-spice/nutmeg , or b.c. & chili flakes). Spray foil lined baking tray with oil spray. Transfer each crumb-coated cutlet to sprayed baking tray. Salt and pepper both sides of each cutlet. Put into fridge or freezer for 10-15 min while oven warms up.
  • Insert into oven at 350 degrees F for 20 min on one side and 15 on the other. Flip once during cooking. Serve with large serving of cabbage mixture, as well as freshly sliced and buttered crusty bread.


The warm cabbage slaw takes a while so start with it first. As Canadians, we are renowned for our cultural heritage so what better way to celebrate our timeless German Oktoberfest in Kitchener/Waterloo than to try out a recipe that tried, tested and just all around, good! Great comfort food too.
