This sweet & simple braised red cabbage side dish is a favorite with our family and guests alike. The first time my husband and I made braised red cabbage our boys shunned it because it was “cabbage” and they didn’t like the look of it. Kids ya know. After we tasted it ourselves, being extremely pleased, we told the kids it tasted like candy. After our oldest taste tester tried it, he agreed and tried to convince his brothers that it truly taste like candy because it was so sweet from the caramelization and of course a bit of brown sugar and butter.
Braised Cabbage Delight

Cooking the cabbage this way slowly caramelizes the cabbage, giving it an even sweeter more succulent taste than just quickly cooking it on a stove top. The butter also helps of course. This combination makes this sweet cabbage dish a winner at any feast.
