Braised Red Cabbage

Braised red cabbage is one of my favourite side dishes to go with a roast. Cabbage is always a winner for me and this one is no exception. The secret here is to braise the cabbage for a long time on a low heat which gives it a melt in the mouth texture. The braising is done with cider and Apple cyder vinegar which gives it an amazing subtle sweetness that is hard to beat.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 95 Minutes

Serves: 4 - 6 people (as stuffing)


1 Whole Red Cabbage, finely shredded

2 onions, finely sliced into half rings

3 apples, cored and finely chopped

3 Tablespoons cider vinegar

500ml apple cider

50g butter

Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Heat a pot on a medium heat and all of the ingredients

  2. Bring to a boil then turn the heat down low, put on the lid and simmer for an hour and a half, stirring every 10 minutes or so. If the liquid evaporates and the cabbage starts sticking, add a little more cider

  3. Serve
