Using a slotted spoon, transfer cabbage and onion to a serving bowl. Stir mustard and caraway seeds into remaining juices in cooker. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon sauce over pork and cabbage. Makes 6 servings.

For sauce, in a medium saucepan, cook 1/2 cup chopped onion in 3 tablespoons hot butter over medium heat until tender.

Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add 1 1/4 cups shredded Gruyere cheese; cook and stir until melted.
