Braised red cabbage is sweet, sour, tender and buttery. It's an easy healthy side dish to serve alongside side roasted chicken or fish. I first tasted braised red cabbage at Houston's restaurant and have been making it at home ever since.
The combination of cabbage, onions and apples along with the sour vinegar and sweet honey, will have you and your family wanting to add this recipe into your weekly menu.
Braised red cabbage is also great for St. Patricks Day or to add to your weekend meal prep.

BRAISED RED CABBAGE RECIPE
1 tablespoon pastured butter
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 green apples, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1 small head of red cabbage (about 2 pounds)
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup goat cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter in a cast iron skillet, large sauté pan, or dutch oven over medium high heat.
Add onions along with a pinch of salt and saute for 6-8 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
Add apples and garlic to the pan. Season with a little more salt and pepper, stir and cook for 2 minutes.
Next, add in the red cabbage, balsamic vinegar, honey and a splash of water. Season again with salt and pepper, and gently stir everything together.
Allow the cabbage to slowly simmer on the stove top for 30 minutes, stirring every so often. If the pan seems dry, add more water as needed (the water will evaporate as the cabbage cooks).
Once the cabbage is tender and buttery, transfer to a serving dish and top with dollops of goat cheese and fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!
If you want to keep this recipe vegan, replace the butter for coconut oil, sprinkle in some sugar in place of the honey, and skip the goat cheese.
