Today I’m sharing with you my amazing recipe for Sauteed Red Cabbage With Bacon And Brown Sugar that is one of my families favorite German side dishes.
Honestly, I’m not sure why this cruciferous vegetable is called “red” cabbage when, clearly it’s purple (and don’t get me started on red onions) but, that’s all besides the point!
Be warned, this dish doesn’t photograph well, AT ALL, but the taste will knock your lederhosen off!!!
A little bit of sweet and a little bit of sour. Add the bacon and you've got a German side dish that will please everyone!
- 1 medium red cabbage cored and sliced
- ½ pound bacon cut into 1" pieces
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ cup brown sugar loosely packed
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until almost crisp. Drain off some of the grease but leave about 2 tablespoons in the pan.
Add in all of the sliced cabbage, butter, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Stir well and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally about 15 minutes.
Stir in the brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and the balsamic vinegar.
Continue cooking, stirring occasionally for an additional 20-25 minutes until the cabbage is completely cooked down, softened and reduced in volume by about half.
Serve and enjoy!
To complement this recipe, I’ve chosen one of my favorite designs to date. It’s an art deco inspired wine glass and the deep purple color reminds me of RED cabbage! Ha Ha…Go figure!
