      For the ZWT 8 Crockpot forum challenge for France, I adapted this recipe for the crockpot, adding a chopped apple, 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, a bay leaf and replacing the vinegar for fresh lemon juice. I cooked it about 4 hours. It turned out very well. I posted Crockpot Braised Red Cabbage with the changes. Thanks for the inspiration, Bayhill!

      Made exactly as written for your 2013 Football Pool win & it was a purely selfish choice. My DH is not at all fond of this type dish, but I adore the genre so I halved the recipe & greedily enjoyed it for several dys w/ea dinner meal. It will be our little secret that I borrowed some of his red wine for the effort & will do it again. I read w/interest another review that mentioned adding bacon & wonder if DH might favor that addition. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

      Fantastic! My husband does not like cabbage. Knowing this, I cooked up 3/4 pound of bacon along with the onion, then drained most of the grease and skipped the butter. I simmered it on the stove-top instead of inside the oven. But otherwise I did everything as instructed. We both loved this dish! Given his distaste, that says a lot!! Thank you so much for posting!
