Braised Red Cabbage from Martha Stewart Living
4 ounces bacon (about 4 slices), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 head red cabbage (2 1/4 pounds), halved, cored, and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup dry red wine
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- Cook bacon in a large pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until fat renders and bacon is crisp, about 8 minutes. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add cabbage, vinegar, wine, water, sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt; stir to combine. Raise heat to medium-high, cover, and cook 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to cook, covered, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Stir apple into cabbage and cook, covered, until cabbage and apples are tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Season with pepper.
