Recipe by Chef John
"We're going to cook a very beautiful, super easy cabbage side dish. All ingredients are totally to taste. It's a little bit sweet and a little bit tangy, with a tiny hint of caraway to interest you."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 small head
red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
salt to taste
red wine vinegar, or to taste
The recipe was simple. I did not add sugar. Husband and I did not care for the caraway seed in this. Next time, I will omit the caraway seed and add some sliced onions. Overall, not a bad recipe.
It would be helpful to list how many cups of cabbage a small head should produce. I think this recipe didn't work for me because my proportions were off.
Great easy basic recipe that can be modified in many ways. I followed the recipe as is this time but will play with it in the future.
This looks really good, and I'm making tonight for St. Patrick's Day.
But I have a QUESTION....
I want to make alot of cabbage separately from my corned beef because I wanted lots potatoes and carrots cooked with my corned beef, plus I wanted a bit more flavor in my cabbage. I was thinking that I could substutite beer for the wine, substitute the "juice" from the corned beef for the water in this recipe, to get the flavor that I'm looking for. ANY THOUGHTS???
I tried putting some baking soda in this dish as I do with green cabbage recipes to cut down on the gas one can experience with cabbage. As soon as the baking soda hit the cabbage it turned the cabbage jade green. It still tasted great but I think baking soda and vinegar had a chemical reaction.
Excellent! Did not change anything. This is definitely a make ahead recipe. It was so much more flavorful on day two.
I had a pretty big head of cabbage so it took a lot longer to cook even though I split it in half. Next time I make it I will add a bit more liquid so it can cook a bit longer without burning. But very yummy!
when I first started making this I tasted it and I didn't really like it. It is a dish you need to be patient with. The taste develops and this ends up being actually very tasty. Thank You chef John, good recipe.
