Apple Braised Cabbage


My husband smoked a Corned Beef Brisket last weekend to celebrate St Patricks Day. I was in charge of the side dishes and knew we wanted Cabbage. I am not a huge fan of Cabbage in general, so I decided to see if I could make it a bit more palatable for myself.

I combined the Cabbage with Honeycrisp Apple Juice after sauteing in Bacon Fat (don't we all have that in our fridge), and wow was it delicious. This will be my new Cabbage recipe from now on, YUM. I will post the Smoked Brisket Recipe on St. Patrick's Day!

1/2 to 1 head of Cabbage cut into slices or however you like it
1/2 onion, sliced
1 cup of good quality Apple Juice
2 tbl Bacon Fat (or you could use vegetable oil)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 tbl Apple Cider Vinegar

Place your bacon fat or oil into a pan on medium high heat, and add your onion and cabbage, stir occasionally until reduced and slightly caramelized

Add in your Apple Juice, Apple Cider Vinegar, salt and pepper and let cook for about 20 minutes without a lid, stirring occasionally

This looks and sounds so good Cheryl! I'll have to try this for sure.
I was wanting to cook corned beef brisket this week, but my husband just turned up his nose at the idea. So no brisket for me, but I can make the cabbage with something else.
