This dressed-up pork loin is so simple that you only have to spend a few minutes preparing it. It’s a family favorite because it is so tasty, and a favorite of mine because it’s so fast and easy. —Laura Cook, Wildwood, Missouri
Cooking cabbage dishes such as corned beef and cabbage or cabbage with pork and potatoes were recipes learned from my mother. However, after living in Switzerland for a few years and traveling through the Alsace-Lorraine region to visit good friends in Strasbourg, there are new associations for cabbage recipes. Driving past field after field of cabbages was an unexpected part of the journey that required my French friends to help me make the connection to an area renowned for the best sauerkraut and classic cabbage, pork, sausage & potato dishes. I decided to try a cabbage and fennel combination and believe they complement each other, both hot and cold. The juniper berries are an addition to the recipe that I learned (after many years of cooking this recipe)adds a special flavor to the cabbage.
This quick and fun snack is similar to the mustard pretzels you can buy at the store, but you can make it for a fraction of the price. It’s a killer recipe for all kinds of parties and football gatherings. —Sarah Mathews, Ava Missouri
