Red Cabbage Casserole Recipe

Since I enjoy spending time with my guests rather than alone in the kitchen, this one's a favorite dish...I've served it with ham, pork and turkey. With its color and eye appeal, I call on it on special days like Christmas or Easter when I'm cooking for a crowd. I'd also recommend it for potlucks. Although my husband and I were "city kids" both born in Toronto, we have been farming since we were married. We have two grown daughters.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 8 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 medium tart apples, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red currant jelly


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine first six ingredients. Cover and cook over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until cabbage is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Add apples; cook 10-15 minutes or until cabbage and apples are tender. Stir in jelly until melted. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"Delicious and easy side. Could not find red currant jelly so substituted apple jelly. This would be a colourful and nice additional side dish for turkey dinners..."

"Excellent flavor, I am having a german party and wanted to try it first. The only negative was a lot of liquid left in the pan. I would leave the cover off the pan to let the liquid reduce more. Excellent!!"

"this is just like the German red cabbage i always make 9I am from Germany) but with 1/3 c sugar and 1/3 c red wine vinegar no jelly, no lemon juice. I also cook the apples in with the cabbage. Try it this way, enjoy."

"I made this for our Christmas Family get together. Everyone loved it. My sister in law even wanted the recipe. I will definitely make this dish again and will probably add it to my Thanksgiving and Christmas menus. I may even add it to the Saint Patrick's menu also."

"Okay... I was curious but very doubtful that this would be good. We eat a lot of fresh raw cabbage but I didn't have many cooked recipes for it. I made a half recipe the night I made baked pork chops and didn't want to buy current jelly just for this recipe so I substituted some plum jam instead. What a great dish! It went so well with the pork and the garlic mini potatoes. We had the best dinner ever with this one. I think it would be great with any dish but try it with chicken and turkey also! This one is going in my make again file!"
