Prep and cook the pork
- Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the caraway cabbage.
Prep and cook the caraway cabbage
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; cut the cabbage into 1-inch pieces.
- Core and cut the apple into 1-inch pieces.
In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the cabbage and apple, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften and brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the caraway seeds and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the cabbage and apple are cooking, prepare the fig agrodolce.
Prep and cook the fig agrodolce
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
- Trim the stems from the figs; coarsely chop the figs.
- In a small bowl, whisk or stir together the figs, balsamic vinegar, arrowroot powder, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water.
In the same pan used for the pork, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the fig-balsamic mixture and cook, whisking or stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the caraway cabbage to individual plates. Top with the pork, spoon over the fig agrodolce, and serve.
