Cider-Braised Cabbage

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

Come fall, it's apple-picking time, and also time to get fresh-pressed apple cider! Cider is not just for drinking, but for adding fall flavor to your menu. Braising the cabbage in cider gives it a light, but distinct, apple flavor.

The hubby and I really liked this. When I asked him what he thought the recipe, he said " It's a keeper!" I sauted some sliced smoked turkey sausage with the onions to make a one-dish-meal that is low in carbs. This is a good recipe for diabetics, as apples and apple vinegar are really good for them, as is the roughage from the cabbage. Low cal and low carb, too. A real winner.

  1. Melt butter in large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add cabbage; saute until slightly wilted, tossing frequently, about 6 minutes. Stir in apple cider. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook until cabbage is tender, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Uncover; simmer until almost all liquid in pot evaporates, about 3 minutes. Stir in vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
