Simplest Braised Cabbage - Low Carb

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Soup Queen

This is very tasty and simple, although I guess it is technically not braised. I serve it with turkey kielbasa for a low-carb, low-fat meal. Another great sausage is Amy's Apple & Gouda Cheese Chicken Sausage. How can healthy eating taste so good!

This was very easy to make and very tasty - I used a prepared cole slaw package of cabbage and cut the sugar by half, which gave it a little bit of sweet and tart together with the vinegar. I served this as a side (and a topping) for hamburgers. Next time I think I'll add some thinly sliced onion and add this to the relish tray. Thanks for posting - made for FALL PAC 2012.


  1. Shred cabbage. I use Cuisinart slicing disk.
  2. Rinse and drain cabbage.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large Dutch oven. It's okay if it is all the way to the top; as it cooks it will reduce in volume.
  4. Cook over medium heat, stirring about every 10 minutes, until the cabbage is as tender as you like.
  5. If you have an aversion to Splenda, use about 1 cup of sugar in its place.
  6. This will keep well for at least a week.
