Not sure where this recipe came from. It is not mine (though I wish I could take credit). Everyone I’ve served it to (and I’ve served it a lot) loves it. Perfect for this time of year. Enjoy.
¼ c. butter
1 2-lb red cabbage, very thinly sliced (about 14 cups)
½ tsp. (or more) of salt
3 T. dry red wine (or hard apple cider)
1 T. red wine vinegar (or cider vinegar)
Melt butter in heavy large pot (I use a dutch oven) over medium heat. Add sliced cabbage and ½ tsp. salt. Stir and toss continuously until cabbage begins to wilt, about 7 minutes. Add red wine and saute until liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes. Add vinegar; stir constantly until cabbage is tender and turns a bright fuchsia color, about 13 minutes longer. (Note: I start tasting for doneness after 7 minutes or so.) Taste and adjust seasonings.
Note: May be prepared up to one day ahead. Cool slightly, cover, and refrigerate. Rewarm, stirring over medium heat, before serving.
