Crock Pot Brats and Cabbage

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Kristy D.

This is a recipe that my MIL made and it is so simple and tasty. I originally made this in the oven, but found that it is easier in the crock pot.

I read the review about being too sour. I know white vinegar can be very overpowering so I decided to drop a 1/4 cup off the white and add a 1/4 cup to the cider vinegar. Just tasting the mixture in the bowl before cooking I think the balance of acid and sugar is perfect. I also added one shredded medium red onion to mix. We'll see in 8 hours how it comes out. I'll keep you posted.
