I learned how to make it at the first restaurant I ever work at and I still use it today. I'm a big fan of cabbage in all it's guises - coleslaw, sauerkraut & braised - and this is one of my favorite ways to cook it. Cabbage works best when served sweet & sour and this recipe gets those flavours from red wine vinegar and a healthy dose of raw cane sugar.br /br /    The sweet and sour favour of this side goes really well with pork. I'll be posting a recipe next week for ginger-honey glazed pork belly that goes perfectly with this red wine braised cabbage. It also goes really well with pork chops or ribs. It even works as a side dish for Asian inspired dishes like sesame beef. br /br /     This recipe is pretty simple to pull of. You just put the ingredients all together in a pot and let it simmer together until the cabbage if soft and most of the liquid has evaporated. You will have to stir it a couple of times and keep a relatively close eye on it to make sure it doesn't get dry and burn. If the pot starts getting to dry before you think it's ready, just add a bit of water to the pot.br /br /Prep time: 10 minutes. Cook time: 20 minutes.
