Braised Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Introduction

Cabbage is cheap, and, as such, we toss a head into our shopping cart a couple of times a month. We often shred it and toss it with vinaigrette, but this braised variety is a welcome break from raw slaws.

Ingredients

    1 T Earth Balance or olive oil
    1/2 onion, sliced
    1 t caraway seeds
    1 head cabbage, halved, core removed and finely
    chopped (use any variety--I prefer red or Savoy)
    2 T raw sugar
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    pinch salt
    pepper to taste



Tips

Rub the caraway seeds between your fingers as you add them to the pot to release more flavor. Don't skip them--they'll add tremendous flavor.


Directions

Melt the Earth Balance in a large Dutch oven set over medium-high heat; add the onions and caraway seeds and cook, stirring often, until the onions soften and start to take on some color, about five minutes. Add the cabbage and 1/2 cup water, stir and cover the pot. After five minutes, remove the lid and stir the cabbage. Add the sugar, stir well to combine, then add the vinegar, continuing to stir.
Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 20 minutes. The cabbage should be tender but not mushy, with minimal liquid.
Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

  • Great side dish that is cooked up quickly. Nice to make when you just have a lonely cabbage sitting in the fridge with no purpose! - 3/12/12
