So here is another one of my cabbage recipes that I mentioned last week!
I love red cabbage, but usually buy the jarred sweet and sour cabbage (which is probably so bad for you but tastes so good!). This time I decided I wanted to buy red cabbage and see what I could do with it. While I was shopping I knew that I wanted to use apples and sausage with it, but I hadn't read a recipe for what I wanted to make. I figured I could just wing it when I got home. And with a little help from the interwebs, I was able to come up with something.
Do you like red cabbage? Ever have the jarred stuff? Mmmm....
Braised Red Cabbage with Sausage
Inspired by Cooking Light
4 links chicken sausage w/sweet apples, casings removed (AFC tip: I buy pre-cooked sausage)
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 C thinly sliced red onion
6 C thinly sliced red cabbage
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 T red wine vinegar
1-2 T honey
2/3 C beer
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp caraway seeds
pepper to taste
Heat vegetable oil in large sauce pot over medium-high heat. Cut sausage into rounds and add to the skillet. Add onion. Once the sausage is browned, add cabbage and remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Cover pot and reduce heat. Simmer for 20 mins while stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaf and serve.
