Braised red cabbage is the ultimate side dish for your holiday table! Add some apple and make it extra delicious! An easy recipe to impress your guests.
Shred cabbage, apples and peeled onion if you have a herb infuser. If you don't have a herb infuser (see video) cut the onion in half to press in cloves.
Add all shredded ingredients to a large heavy bottomed pot or slow cooker and pour vegetable stock and red wine into it.
Add cloves and cinnamon sticks to herb infuser or press cloves into halved onions and press into the pot until submerged in the liquid at the bottom.
Bring to a boil and then immediately reduce heat to a low simmer, cover and let simmer for about 3 hours or until the cabbage is nice and soft and reduced in amount to about half.
Alternatively, turn on the slow cooker for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
Remove lid and let most liquid evaporate while constantly stirring in oder to prevent from burning (this only takes about 10 minutes).
This is where you want to add the cranberry sauce if you're adding any.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot.
