"For the ZWT 8 Crockpot forum challenge for France, I adapted this recipe for the crockpot, adding a chopped apple, 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, a bay leaf and replacing the vinegar for fresh lemon juice. I cooked it about 4 hours. It turned out very well. I posted recipe #484550 with the changes. Thanks for the inspiration, Bayhill!"
"Made exactly as written for your 2013 Football Pool win & it was a purely selfish choice. My DH is not at all fond of this type dish, but I adore the genre so I halved the recipe & greedily enjoyed it for several dys w/ea dinner meal. It will be our little secret that I borrowed some of his red wine for the effort & will do it again. I read w/interest another review that mentioned adding bacon & wonder if DH might favor that addition. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us."
"Fantastic! My husband does not like cabbage. Knowing this, I cooked up 3/4 pound of bacon along with the onion, then drained most of the grease and skipped the butter. I simmered it on the stove-top instead of inside the oven. But otherwise I did everything as instructed. We both loved this dish! Given his distaste, that says a lot!! Thank you so much for posting!"
"This dish is delicious! Perfect mix of flavors. Made it just like you said. Made for two wins ago for the football pool. Congrats!"
"Great sweet and sour red cabbage! I used Merlot and did add an extra two to three tablespoons of sugar and vinegar for our taste. Much better than the jar of red cabbage from the grocery store! Along with being very tasty it is easy to make. Thank you Bayhill! Made and reviewed for the Football Pool - Week 1."
"Awesome!This dish is incredibly good! I am a cabbage lover, red, green, any cabbage. But, not all of my family is. And we also had a guest, who was skeptical of trying it, but did. They ALL got seconds! I almost wished that they didn't, because it would have been more for me! (Just kidding!) I was very happy that it went over so well! Your recipe made me look good! Thanks Dear, for sharing it! Made with pleasure for Zaar World Tour!"
