Overall a good combination and easy to adapt. However, no chance of cooking this in the time suggested. Raw potato wedges need much longer than 10mins. I always use red onion with red cabbage and added a tbsp of balsamic vinegar and a heaped desert spoon of soft brown sugar to the cabbage. Uncover the cabbage once softened to allow some of the liquid to evaporate and flavours to intensify.

Easy but cabbage wasn't very flavorful. I used three tbls of c'berries. Also cabbage took quit a bit longer to cook

Chops were nice with the mustard one, that I will do again but the "fruity" cabbage was not as expected. Mlurh, wont be cooking it again.

Will become a frequent meal. Needed a bit more cranberry in cabbage, still very good.

I just cooked this and LOVED IT!! very easy to prepare as well, another thumbs up from my boyfriend. He usually hates red cabbage and onions on there own, but the combination of flavors he actually shocked me by asking for more :) On the whole brilliant

This was fantastic, so tasty. I over cooked the chops (someone was late back from work!) but the flavours were lovely. I added whole garlic cloves to the wedges. Our favourite was the fruity red cabbage, will make again.

Just cooked this but served the chops and the slaw with sweet potato mash and green beans, lovely! I grilled the chops for 6 mins each side and all came together well.

I would say that you need more that 4 tbls of cranberry, i used the whole jar!

Really Really tasty.

I cooked the wedges with olive oil, paprika and piri piri to add a spicy twist.

Garlic bread works as a good side too.
