good eats from Aldi - pork roast and red cabbage with pears

Still having some of the pork roast left over, but no more of the cauliflower, I opted for a more traditional combination today for lunch. I reheated the pork roast and then added some red cabbage to which I had mixed in some pears.

All ingredients were at one point on sale at Aldi.

The red cabbage was in a jar and tasted good by itself, but adding a pear, finely chopped, to it gives it a sweeter flavor that goes well with the pork roast.The image below shows the skillet with the cabbage just after I added the pear.

The final product - pork roast with a simple black pepper coating and red cabbage. Even though the pear was soft, it held up well in the cooking process and its flavor definitely came through. If you have a soft pear, do not cop it too finely, so that you can still see the pear pieces in the finished dish. Very nice meal and quite healthy!
