How to Cook Red Cabbage with Apples

  1. Peel and finely slice the onion. Peel, core and slice the apples and finely slice the red cabbage. Melt the butter in a pan or casserole over a medium heat (because of the addition of vinegar, do not use any aluminium pans for this recipe). Gently fry the onion in the butter for 3 minutes, then add the apple and cabbage. Cook for 5-6 minutes, until softened a little, then add the sherry vinegar (or red wine vinegar) and the sultanas.
  2. Cover the casserole (pan) with a lid and cook very gently for 1 hour. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper and replace the lid. Continue to cook until the cabbage is tender and all the liquid has evaporated (about another 1 hour).

Red Cabbage with Apples will keep for several days, covered, in the fridge. Simply heat it up again when ready to serve.

Reviews of Red Cabbage with Apples

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again December 14 2014
I'd had Red Cabbage with Apples in a German restaurant and really loved it. I'd never made red cabbage before and was surprised at the ease of the recipe which was so close to what I had in the restaurant and really good.. We really enjoyed this dish. And easy enough to make. I used apple cider vinegar and it came out really well. My go-to recipe every time we have pork shoulder roast now!
