Chef John's Braised Red Cabbage

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook cabbage in the hot butter until it begins to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt. Pour in water, red wine, and red wine vinegar. Stir to combine. Mix in sugar and caraway seeds.
  2. Continue to cook and stir until liquid has evaporated and cabbage is tender, about 5 minutes. If cabbage isn't quite tender, add a splash of water and continue cooking a few more minutes.

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.

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.

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.

I've never had braised cabbage, so I've nothing to compare this to, but I liked this! I served it with grilled tuna and I liked a bite of this with each bite of the tuna. Mr. LTH was not a huge fan, but I enjoyed it. THANKS for the recipe, Chef John!
