Cabbage With Pork In Terracotta Pot – Welcome The Cold Weather

We said goodbye to the summer, the weather changed and now, when it is getting colder and days are shorter, I started preparing more dishes that my family usually associates with the cold months of the year. Like the cabbage with or without meat, cooked in my favourite earthenware dish.

Today I suggest you cook a meal that is really easy to make, because all you have to do is to put all the ingredients in the pot and just wait till it’s ready. You know I like cooking in the terracotta pot, because everything cooked there is really, really yummy. I’ve made this meal in my terracotta pot, click here to see it.

See the recipe for cabbage with pork that my mum used to make for us when I was a kid and now I sometimes cook for my family. You can, of course, skip the meat and make it a vegetarian dish with this autumn vegetable, but I, personally, like to add meat as well. First of all, my husband always looks for the meat and feels hungry if there are only vegetables on the table. Secondly, the meat adds delicious flavours, together with its seasoning, which makes this dish even more scrumptious and inviting.

My only advice would be – do not eat too much of this dish, because cabbage makes your tummy bloat and you may feel a little bit unwell until it passes 🙂

Hope you try it.
