To prepare the Cabbage & Noodles I started with the bacon. Let's all face it, everything is better with bacon, even bacon. The answer is always bacon.
When that was done, I drained most of the bacon fat.
A long, long, long time ago, I saw a product from an infomercial and I bought it, something I had never done before or since. It is a "Miracle Thaw" and I love it. I have used it thousands of times and it really does work. I thought it was magic until I found out how it works and that I could have used a regular cookie sheet, but still all in all, I am very happy that I did buy it. I placed the chops on the Miracle Thaw and let it work it's magic. Andrew did not think that they would defrost in time, but I knew they would. Hehehehe.
