Reviews forGerman Red Cabbage
"Delicious! My mother in law taught me how to make this. She called it "Rodkol", (roadcoal) she added caraway seeds, but I made mine using your recipe. Excellent! Thanks for sharing."
"Growing up in a German family, my grandmother made this often. However, as a child, I refused to eat it because I thought it looked "yucky and weird", so this was my first time making this, per my husband's request. And after one bite, only one word came out of my mouth - "Wow." I'm finding out now what I was missing as a child. This is absolutely delicious. I did as many others did, I used cider vinegar because it was all I had. Besides the vinegar, I didn't change a thing. And now that I've finally had German red cabbage, it definitely won't be the last time I make it."
"Prepared as written except I used apple cider vinegar - delish and easy!"
"easy to make and so good"
"This was delicious!"
"Made this recently for company and it was really good. I made it using the food processor for cabbage, onion and apples. I did substitute apple cider vinegar as that was what I had. Served it warm as a side dish of baby back ribs along with a green salad Yummy"
"Added another 1/3 cup red wine vinegar. Will use an additional apple next time."
"Next time I'll use red wine vinegar instead of white to give it extra zip!"
"I too made this with Splenda as that is what my recipe called for. The picture & all other ingredients were the same. Loved it."
