Cabbage season is coming very soon, I find myself running out of ideas on how to prepare cabbage in a quick and easy way. One awesome recipe is this Sweet and Sour Purple Cabbage which is wonderfully like sauerkraut, only is served hot, and goes very well with Ira’s smoked sausage or pork chops done on the barbecue.
- 1/4 cup butter or less
- 1 2-pound red cabbage, thinly sliced
- 6 Tbsp organic sugar or less, or honey
- 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar or rice vinegar
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add cabbage and sauté until slightly wilted, about 5 minutes. Add sugar, toss to coat evenly. Add vinegar. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover, simmer until cabbage is tender, stirring often, about 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. This recipe makes your kitchen full of the scent of vinegar, but the reward is worth it!
