Adapted from The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen

I like this dish with a hint of sweetness so the seasoning here is perfect for me. I would imagine that you could replace half the water with apple juice or cider if you want it sweeter.

  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1 large
    red onion, sliced into thin crescents
  • 2 teaspoons
    brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon
    caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon
    kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup
  • 3 tablespoons
    cider vinegar
  • 1 head
    purple cabbage, sliced into 1/2-inch strips (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 large
    firm apple, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick
    freshly ground pepper
  1. In a wide heavy sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter.  Add the onions, brown sugar, caraway seeds, salt, and a few grinds of pepper.  Sauté the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes, until softened.
  2. Add the water, vinegar, cabbage, and apple.  Raise the heat and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce the heat to low, and braise for 25 to 30 minutes.  
  3. Uncover and cook over high heat for a few minutes until the juices have reduced.  Season the dish to taste with salt and pepper.
