  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Parsley
  • Bay leaves
  • Peppercorns
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • 1 pound potatoes 3 to 4 medium
  • 2 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 large leek white, thinly sliced
  • 12 small white onions
  • 1 1/2 cups diced celery stalks
  • 1 1/2 cups peas
  • Chopped fresh parsley


  • Season chops with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in saucepan wide enough to hold all chops in a single layer. Brown on both sides. Spoon off any melted fat and add enough water to cover chops. Bring to a boil and add parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns, thyme and rosemary enclosed in cheesecloth. Lower heat and simmer.
  • Meanwhile, peel potatoes and shape into bite size rounds. Chop trimmings from potatoes into small pieces. Add potatoes, trimmings, cabbage, onion, well-rinsed leek, white onions and celery to chops and liquid. Simmer 20 minutes, then add peas. Add a little more water if needed during cooking. Simmer 10 minutes more or until potatoes are tender.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.
