Today’s Kitchen: Martha Stewart
Martha Stewart hung out with the Today Show crew to make some meal ideas from her latest cookbook, One Pot. Try this Bacon and Cabbage Pork Chops Recipe, or get more ideas for Skillet Macaroni, Sausage Sweet Potato Soup, and Beef Stew.
Al Roker is a huge fan of pork chops, so he worked with Martha Stewart on this recipe demonstration. Just don’t be like Matt Lauer and Hoda Kotb, eating raw bacon. It is probably not the best idea.

Martha Stewart: Today Show Bacon and Cabbage Pork Chops Recipe Directions

- Flip the pork and cook it for another minute or so.
- Remove the pork and rest it on a plate.
- Lower heat to medium.
- Add bacon, cooking about five minutes.
- Add onion next, cooking five minutes or so to soften it.
