Posted in response to a request, taken from The New Canadian Basics Cookbook. The cookbook states this is a wonderful side dish to serve with pork, poultry and sausages, and I'd have to agree.

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!
