I’ve been using this recipe for several years and it’s a necessary side dish for sausages on the grill. I found a new local sausage shop in the Milwaukee area and this cabbage is perfect alongside a brat or a spicy Hungarian! I also use Stevia or Splenda in place of the sugar.
Hi Linda, I’m so glad you like it! Good to know it works with Stevia or Splenda too. Thanks for letting us know.
I used Fig Reserve Balsamic Vinegar! Delish!
Yum! All I had was apple cider vinegar and rice vinegar so I mixed them instead of the balsamic and it was still great. I also eat Keto, so I used swerve seeetner in place of sugar.
Made with a black berry balsamic- excellent
So easy and delicious! I added a small apple too like one other poster did only because I only hard a partial head of red cabbage! It tasted yummy, thank you for the recipe!
Added a sliced red onion. Added a thinly sliced Granny Smith apple during last 5 minutes. Terrific! Easy!
So good. Almost as good as Oma’s
I’ve never cooked cabbage before and seriously doubted how good this was, but I’ve tried SO many Simply Recipes recipes and this one did not disappoint! Thanks for sharing!
I make mine a bit differently. I sauté a large Spanish onion chopped very fine until it turns lightly golden. Also add 2 big finely chopped garlic just before the onion start catching color. Slice a whole red cabbage like cole slaw, very thin slices. Then grate the largest size honey crisp apple you can find, peeled of course and mix with the onion and cabbage mixture. Add about 3/4 of a one litre bottle of apple cider vinegar , add a bit of salt and about 1 tbsp. of sugar and cook it away. Taste occasionally if it needs more sugar or salt or apple cider vinegar. If there is a lot of liquid n the pot after it’s cooked, just drain some of it off. My family loves this so I have to make a lot . Goes well with pork.
I loved this recipe. I added onions and garlic only because I like them. My hubby and I ate the whole pot, lol
This was really fantastic. The best sweet and sour cabbage I’ve ever had. I can’t believe how good it is with on minimal ingredients. I made according to recipe, but liberal with pepper and salt.
I love sweet sour cabbage! I substituted bacon fat (every good Czech has a jar in the fridge) for the butter!!! Delicious
My German mother made this for us,it was a family favourite. She added pieces of chopped pork, dill, sugar, cinnamon and thickened with cornflour if needed.
I added a red onion that I sautéed until soft before adding the cabbage. I also substituted coconut oil for the butter because we are dairy free.
Absolutely delicious recipe and perfect for cold winter in New England.
A lovely dish. I added 2 peeled apples and some fresh grated nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon I also used the apple cider vinegar. This recipe is a good base, I love seeing all the changes people have made.
Just like grandma used to make ! Add a drop of mustard to give it an edge. yum !
Add a pinch of allspice and simmer for ~2 hours. My German asked for this recipe.
Our family, German and Bavarian, make a very similar recipe except instead of balsamic vinegar we use apple cider vinegar. When apples are used it really brings out their flavor.
I paired this with a bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin tonight. Here in Vienna, the vegetables are so beautiful and remind me of my grandmother’s garden. When I washed the cabbage, I had a beautiful cobalt blue sink by the time I was done. Then when I cooked it up (I added one apple with the thinly sliced with the peel on) I had the whole thing looking such a rich hue of purple. It was delicious and just like what they serve at Schmidt’s in Columbus, Oh (which is just the way I like it). I hate to measure things, so I’m sure it wasn’t just like this recipe, but it included all the ingredients. My Austrian husband was quite surprised to find out how much he liked it.
