Red Cabbage Saute

  • 2 lbs. red cabbage
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 ½ lbs. tart green apples, peeled, quartered, and sliced
  • ½ c. butter (I use less)
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 2 T. cider vinegar
  • ¼ t. cloves
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • black pepper to taste
  • ¾ c. beer

Sauté the cabbage, onions and apples in the butter for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Cover, lower the heat, and let simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. The cabbage can be served at this point but improves if allowed to cool and reheated several hours later or the next day.  From The Vegetarian Epicure Book Two by Anna Thomas
