Braised Red Cabbage with Apples and Onion




Yield 4 Servings


1 medium apple

1/2 red onion sliced

6 cups sliced cabbage (about 1/2 of a cabbage)

1T olive oil

2T apple cider vinegar

1t caraway seed

2T brown sugar

1t salt


Quarter, core and slice apple in 1/4" slices, slice onion in 1/4" slices. Use a skillet that has a lid, place on med-high heat and add oil. When hot add onion and apple and saute until onion starts to soften, about 5 minutes. While this is cooking cut your cabbage in half and then half again. cut out the core and slice horizontally in 1/4" slices. Break up the pieces of cabbage so that it has a shredded consistency, then add to the skillet with the vinegar, caraway seed,salt and sugar. Stir well, cover and simmer for 30 -40 minutes until cabbage is cooked through but still has a bit of bite to it. You will want to stir every 10 minutes or so while it is cooking to insure that everything cooks evenly.
