Apple and wine braised red cabbage

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 large head red cabbage, shredded or sliced as thinly as possible
  • 1 onion, halved and cut as thinly as possible
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 apples, cored and cut into eighths
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Heat oil in large braiser or wok over medium-high flame. Add cabbage and onions; season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir well. Cover, reduce heat, and allow mixture to wilt slightly, about S minutes. Stir in wine, vinegar, and brown sugar. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in apples and raisins; cook another 20-30 minutes. I’ve also used water instead of the wine and omitted the apples and raisins and it’s still yummy! Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Makes 6 servings.
