Vietnamese Beef and Red Cabbage Bowl

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
I love the bold taste of Vietnamese dishes. This is packed with flavor and spice and is just beautiful in colors. I have tried doing individual bowls but prefer a family-style serving. Serve with a quality jasmine rice and spring roll for additional savory awesomeness. Add a little sliced habanero pepper if you want to increase the heat level. (I'm from Texas and like heat.)

Red Cabbage Salad with Apples

This easy red cabbage salad is full of vitamins. The salad should sit for at least 1 hour to develop its full flavor before eating.

Blaukraut (German Red Cabbage)
