Reviews for Ruby Red Cabbage
"Great tasty recipe, i have cooked it a number of times now and just use a large covered fry pan. Really tasty."
"This was delicious and really easy to make. Very nice with roast pork. The cabbage stayed a lovely red colour and the sauce was very tasty. Even those not that keen on cabbage enjoyed this dish."
"I was looking for a recipe that tasted just like the jarred sweet and sour red cabbage we love, but better. This is it! I did make some changes to suit our preferences. I omitted the dried cranberries and the jelly, increased the butter to 4 tablespoons, and increased the brown sugar a bit too (because I left out the jelly). In my opinion, it doesn't need the oven at all, it can continue to cook on the stovetop. I actually transfered the cabbage to a crockpot because it was being served at a party, so it continued to cook on high for a half hour and then warm to hold until serve time. I served it with a grilled pork loin with a spicy dry rub, but will serve it with our Sauerbraten as well."
