"I did make a few changes because of the ingredients on hand. I used regular white vinegar, and added a peeled-diced gala apple. I didn't think I wanted a beef broth base so I just used a very small amount of water. The family liked it!"
"Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. like the kind they serve at a Polish restaurant I love. And I always have the ingredients on hand. Thanks so much for the keeper! I make this often now and we like it with just 1 Tbs butter, 1/2 tsp mustard powder, garlic powder and cinnamon. Love this, thanks!"
Molly suggested this. It was exactly what I wanted! Super yum!!
Went excellent w/my sauerbraten & potatoe dumplings!"
"This is a nice recipe!! I added a little extra vinegar and a little caraway seeds and cloves to mine, just because I like it that way! Next time, I think I'll omit the butter or at least cut it in half~~~and see how that affects the taste~~it would sure save a lot of calories~~~Having this today with a small pork roast and potatoes."
"This was wonderful sweet & sour cabbage! I made this to go with a German schnitzel based meal, it was a wonderful side dish and could not be easier to make. 5 stars for taste and ease of preparation. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6 on behalf ogf the Looney Spoon Phoodies."
"I don't usually like cooked cabbage, but this was decidedly different from what I expected, & it's sweet/sour was very nice! I did change one thing, though ~ switched the beef stock for a homemade vegetable kind & was able to share it with my vegetarian son & DIL! To my surprise, I expect to be making this one again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Germany with the ZWT6]"
"Wonderful! Even the kids loved it. I used veg. broth 'cause we keep kosher and served this with german potato dumplings with butter on them...I can't imagine the beef broth would be any better 'cause this was great...I can't wait to pass this one on to my mom. What a wonderful, inexpensive Shabbat meal...thanks for posting."
"So easy and great for gatherings because of the amount it makes. This is a wonderful recipe for barbeque's as there is no mayo. It would be nice as a side for just about any meat."
"I love sweet and sour red cabbage and enjoyed this recipe. Very easy to make and smells so good while cooking. I would have liked a little more sour flavor for my taste and would add 3/4 of a cup of vinegar next time. Made and reviewed for ZWT 4."
"Very easy and tasty side dish! I've always loved sweet and sour red cabbage, and this is just the way I like it, without any additional bells and whistles, just cabbage. Yum! Thanks Debber! Made for ZWT 4."
"So simple, yet so delicious. This really is a colorful addition to a meal. I simmered mine for 45 minutes. I think that I will have to start using this recipe for holiday dinners. Thanx for posting."
"My Dad always made this growing up - sometimes would add onions or small bits of fried bacon to change it up, but usually just like this. I just happened to pick up the same Frugal Gourmet book you posted from and ran across the recipe and thought to see if it was posted when I ran into yours. YUMMY! I recommend anyone who likes red cabbage at ALL try this - it is terrific!! Thanks for posting!!"
