Austrian Red Cabbage

Austrian Red Cabbage

Introduction

My mother is from Austria, this dish was one of hers. At neighborhood BBQ and Potluck suppers, they always requested she bring this dish. It is different. Oh and it really gets those daily vegatables in! My mother is from Austria, this dish was one of hers. At neighborhood BBQ and Potluck suppers, they always requested she bring this dish.

Ingredients

    One head of Red Cabbage Shredded
    12 slices of bacon (with fat)
    2 Cups of Cider Vinegar
    Salt, Garlic powder to taste

Directions

Shred one head of red cabbage. Place in pot with water to cover and bring to boil. Boil until tender but not mushy about 3 minutes (and water will turn deep purple). Drain water, set aside.
In the mean time, cut bacon into small peices and fry in pan until crispy, and remove from heat.
Pour bacon, fat and all into cabbage, add 2 cups of vinegar (isn't that cool, the color goes from deep purple to bright fushia!) Stir, add Salt and Garlic Powder to taste.
It makes alot of servings-10 large servings, but this is one of those dishes that tastes even better the next day or two!!

  • I make this in a similar way but use much less vinegar. More like 2 Tablespoons. Also before boiling cabbage I shred and salt to draw out the fluid and soften. It is savory of course . - 10/7/11
