Christmas - Braised Red Cabbage Recipe

Braised Red Cabbage Recipe

Red cabbage is underrated, prepared in the right way it can provide a rich festive colour and flavour, more inspiring than the usual Savoy. One major benefit is that red cabbage can be put in a pan on the stove and kept warm, a crucial factor if you are struggling for space at Christmas as it takes the pressure off the oven.

Cooking & Prep Time:


  1. Cut the red cabbage into quarters, remove the stalk, finely shred with a large chopping knife. (Our prepared shredded red cabbage will save you time at this stage).
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the garlic and onions, sweat for 5 minutes on a low heat.
  3. Add the cabbage and stir, ensuring the onions and cabbage are mixed together.
  4. Add the spices and sugar, followed by the red wine vinegar, and bring to the boil.
  5. Stir in the diced apples, place a tight-fitting lid on the pan, cook on a low heat on the stove, stirring occasionally.
  6. The cabbage will take approximately 2 to 2.5 hours to cook. It can also be braised on a low heat in the oven.
