THE FIRST TIME I bought a red cabbage, I didn't quite know what to do with it, but after some experimenting, I came up with this recipe. It has now become my fall "comfort food". This side dish is compatible with a variety of meat entrees, but I especially like it with a pork roast or chops. -Karen Gorman, Gunnison, Colorado

"I made this for an Octoberfest party. My guests raved about it. I left out the caraway seeds (I don't like them) and I don't think they were missed. Great heated up for leftovers."
