Feb 5: Quesadilla; Pork Loin Chops with Caramelized Cabbage


We finally got to use our final Tortillas to make a Quesadilla.

  • The Tortillas were six for $1.99 and we shared two, or 33c per serve
  • Half a can of refried beans, shared across two halves is 26c per serve
  • We used two slices of Swiss per serve, or 68c
  • Add 50c for Salsa.

It turned out pretty well for $1.77 per serve.


The Pork Loin chops came from our Keller Crafted meat box, and are a heritage breed, which means there is a lot more fat than modern pork.

We served with a new recipe: Caramelized Cabbage.

  • The Pork Cutlets costing $11.55 or $5.78 per serve
  • The Savoy Cabbage was $1.07 or 54c per serve
  • Tomato Paste was 85c or 43c per serve
  • Add 30c for seasoning
  • Add 40c for garlic and other ingredients
  • Add 50c for butter for frying
  • Add 20c for Tzatziki Labne.

The Cabbage turned out really well. The Tomato Sauce had a good mix of spice and heat, and the Cabbage was fall-apart tasty. It paired well with the perfectly cooked, and very moist, Pork Chops. A great meal for $8.15 per serve.
