Braised Red Cabbage with bacon
6 pieces of bacon chopped
1 tbsp. sugar
1 large sweet onion thinly sliced
2 Granny Smith apples cored, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 heads of red cabbage thinly sliced
2 cups chicken stock
I used a crock pot because at one point this dish needs to be covered. If I had a really big deep frying pan, I would have used that.
Saute the bacon pieces until just crispy. Add in the sugar until dissolved. Add in the onions and sauted for about 6/8 minutes or until soft. Add in the apples and saute another 6/8 minutes. Add in the red wine and red wine vinegar and the cabbage. Saute and then cover the pot for about 6 minutes or until the cabbage has just started to soften. Add in salt, pepper and the stock. Bring to a boil and then down to simmer. Cover and let it hang out on the stove for a good hour and a half.
