Sweet-Sour Red Cabbage
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.
