Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Recipe Image

Delicious with chicken, this tangy dish is a winner, especially during the chilly winter months when cabbage is in season.

Preparation facts

Yield: 4 servings


1 medium red cabbage head

1 medium apple

1 Tbs (15mL) vegetable oil

2 Tbs (20g) brown sugar

2 Tbs (30mL) balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp (3g) salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)

1/2 tsp (2g) black pepper


Cut cabbage into quarters. Slice away the inner core and discard. Slice the quartered cabbage into thin strips. Core apple and chop into 1/2-inch (1cm) pieces.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add cabbage and apple and cook, uncovered, stirring for 10 minutes, until cabbage is wilted.

Add brown sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper, and mix well. Cover and cook for 5 minutes more.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
