Braised Red Cabbage – German

Posted on 12 January 2013 by admin     

Jack Scalfani gets some German going with this simple side dish. Here is the recipe: Ingredients: 3 1/2 lb red cabbage (1 medium head), quartered, cored, and thinly sliced crosswise 4 bacon slices, chopped 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced 1/2 cup white-wine vinegar 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper preparation Rinse cabbage under cold water, then drain (do not pat dry). Cook bacon in an 8-quart heavy pot over moderately low heat, stirring, until crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, reserving it for another use. Add butter to bacon fat, then increase heat to moderate and cook onions, stirring, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in cabbage, vinegar, brown sugar, salt, and pepper and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 1 1/4 hours.

    Hey Jack! Ever since I found this recipe last year, my entire family has asked me to make it at least once a week! It’s such a hit with german bratwurst and warm german potatoes! This is one of my favorite dishes to the point where I can eat? it on it’s own. The only thing I do is adjust the amount of sugar and add more vinegar. We like it a bit more tart, but other than that, this is such a hit! Thanks for sharing! Happy eating!

    Looks just like when Ralphie opens the pot in A Christmas Story. I had that once in a? German restaurant outside Chicago. It was served along with some brats and sauerkraut. Mmmm.

    we always make it with apple, apple juice (you can get in any store), the same amount red wine, a bit of sugar, salt. it goes very well with duck breast and orange honey sauce (that’s what we always make for christmas) or? any kind of “heavy meat” :)))))
    greetings from vienna ^^

    Chesses crisps, what the hell is that supposed? to mean?

    This dish is not only German but common throughout central europe, as one viewer commented it is usually made with apple, and instead of white wine vinegar use cider apple vinegar, also you can add some raisins and cinnamon. This goes great with pork. Maximum flavour minimum price. In? holland you can buy it pre-made in frozen blocks, it costs very little.

  25. DamianNeate Says:

    hey jack, i think how you said this can be a vegetarian dish isnt completely correct, as you’ve? used bacon fat in it. maybe some vego’s wouldnt mind, but i know a couple who definitely wouldnt eat it. Just an observation.
    Anyway, im cooking this tomorrow because it looks FANTASTIC. great stuff.
