Our local super had a sale on red cabbage and I decided to try this recipe last night. I can highly recommend it, and this will be added to my recipe list. Very flavorful combination including the chicken stock, wine, and brown sugar. Since I'm a garlic lover, I added a couple extra cloves of garlic. Easy, flavorful side dish. Thanks, Lennie!

This is a great recipe - only change I made was adding a couple of pieces of crumbled bacon - my sister-in-law used to make it many years ago and she used bacon with a little pit of bacon grease (today that's probably not a good idea)! Oh, and try adding balsemic vinegar in place of the red wine - gives it a better sweet/sour taste. Anyway, my husband loved it - we ate all of it in one sitting!!!!

Nice and simple and very healthy! Not too sweet. Next time I might try it with a tad more brown sugar and vinegar. Thanks Lennie

Pretty darn good I used Splenda and bacon fat. Next time try a bit of soy sauce. That livens it up a bit and enhances the cabbage flavor

I made this recipe as posted, and found it to be a bit bland for my family. I searched my fridge and found some cranberry salsa, added another apple, a bit more splenda , and voila a delicious dish Thanks so much for the basic recipe.We will be enjoying this dish for a longtime to come. With the cranberries it could make it to the Thanksgiving table.

This was really good and easy. I had it as a side dish to the Chipotle Pork Roast. It was a tasty combination. It would be good with any pork roast. I will definately keep this one.

This was simply fabulous! My husband and I are on the South Beach Diet (Phase one) and I made this for super tonight. I omitted the fruit since we are not allowed to have any yet and replaced the sugar with Splenda. Super Yummy! Definately a keeper! Can't wait to try this with apples!

Hello everyone ,would just like to add a variation to the Braised Red Cabbage recipe, I do not add garlic but I add to your taste peeled and diced green apple and the same with cranberry jam the amount varies with your taste ,if its too tarte add some sugar ,braise all the ingredients in a heavy based saucepan this includes the shredded red cabbage -diced green apples-cranberry jam -spanish onion,braise till all is tender if there is a little too much liquid I thicken with a small amount of cornflour ,give it a try and you will be amazed with the result I've used this in my chef kitchen for years ,ps season as required thanks ---Nev D.

Loved this recipe. I cut the recipe ingredients but half to match the 4 cups of chopped cabbage I had on hand. I used green cabbage and I added 1 large carrot, shreaded to the dish along with the onion. I found that the cook time, as listed, was way too long as mine was done in under 20 minutes.

This is a great basic recipe! Lots of substitutions are possible. I added extra apples for sweetness instead of sugar. Also used apple cider vinegar. It made me think of Germany. Next time I'll add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp each of ground cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Served it with half whole wheat/half white flour Spaetzle dumplings and chicken bratwurst.
