After making kugelhopf, I needed something to have with it. I then remembered this German Cabbage I had not made in a long time. It was a perfect complement to the savory kugelhopf.
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 4 cups red cabbage, sliced
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 green apple, peeled and chopped
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3 cloves
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 slices bacon, fried crisp and chopped (optional)
In a large skillet, heat oil. Add onion and apple with the cinnamon and cloves and saute for a few minutes, until onions are translucent.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper
Add cabbage and vinegar solution to skillet. Toss a few times to evenly incorporate ingredients. Cover and reduce heat to low and cook for 30-40 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed by the cabbage.
To serve, garnish with chopped bacon.
