Braised Red Cabbage with Apples


I love this recipe for braised red cabbage with apples. It's simple, and can be made in to a festive winter side dish if you add cinnamon and orange.

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
45 mins
Total Time:
1 hr
4 servings


  • 1 medium orange, halved

  • 1 medium head red cabbage, cored and diced (1-inch pieces)

  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • ½ medium onion, chopped

  • ¼ cup vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Juice one orange half. Remove and discard the peel from the second half, and cube the flesh.

  2. Combine cabbage, apples, onion, vinegar, cinnamon, and salt in a large stock pot over low heat. Add orange juice and chopped flesh, then season with pepper. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender and has reduced, at least 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For an even softer braise, cook an additional 15 to 30 minutes.
