There isn’t a recipe card for the Cabbage and Noodles recipe, it’s just something we know, love and make. I’d like to think it’s of German descent and I’m pretty sure that’s what mom would say but I don’t really know. Cabbage and Noodles is a side that is particularly good with pork so I’ll also be sharing our favorite marinade that we use with pork chops and pork tenderloin.
Cabbage and Noodles
The simplicity of this recipe and the nutritional benefits of cabbage make it the perfect side. It pairs well with all meats and not just pork. The process is very simple. I boil the noodles while sauteing the cabbage, when the noodles are done I add them to the cabbage, stir, add salt and then a generous amount of pepper and I’m done. It’s just that easy and this side really does get rave reviews. The flavor you get when combining noodles and sauteed cabbage is very difficult to describe so you will have to take my word on this one. It’s good!
The pork marinade was Tom’s find. Since he does the grilling I had him do the research. He found the marinade on the Allrecipes site and we use it for pork chops and pork tenderloin as pictured above. I prefer marinating overnight especially if you have a large piece of meat like a tenderloin. Placing the meat side down and the fatty side up will help in the absorption of the marinade. I will add that the marinade recipe that I’m including was enough to do an 8 lb tenderloin, you know the large pieces you get at club stores. You will see that it was cut in half for grilling. OK – it’s ready for the grill.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 cup light low salt soy sauce
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic (I use more)
- Mix all ingredients and marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours.
