  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions​

  1. In a large saucepan or nonstick skillet, brown sausage over medium heat. Add the potatoes, cabbage, onion, broth, 1/2 cup water, sugar, caraway seeds and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.

My wife made this stew this morning and we all enjoyed it this evening.

The recipe is good enough to earn “print a hard copy” status, meaning it’s going into our weekly menu rotation.

Thanks @timothy

Isn’t that an understatement! I don’t make any cabbage things nearly enough!
We usually have it on New Year's, and every year we say we should have this more often..
I really need to keep a list of things like that. It's not like it's hard to make or anything.

we make this often- really easy (especially if you have a mandoline) and good:

Sautéed Cabbage​

Ingredients

1 small head green cabbage about 2 1/2 pounds​
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar plus additional to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme optional


Instructions​

  • Cut the cabbage in half from its top down through its core. Place the cut-side down on your cutting board, then slice it as thinly as possible around the core so that you have fine ribbons. Discard the core.
  • Heat a large saute pan or similar heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter. Once the butter is melted, add the cabbage, salt, and pepper. Saute for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender and begins to brown. Don't feel like you need to constantly stir it. Leaving cabbage undisturbed for a minute or two as you go is what will allow it to develop brown caramelized bits (aka FLAVOR).
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the apple cider vinegar. Taste and add a bit of additional salt and pepper if you like, or a splash more vinegar if you'd like to add more zippy and acidic flavors. Sprinkle with thyme. Serve warm.

Cabbage, bacon, onions, yum.
I also do a deconstructed cabbage roll casserole which is pretty good.

Sounds great Timothy!
As much as we love cabbage, I'm surprised that I've never seen that recipe. Thanks for posting it.
