Sweet-and-Sour Braised Cabbage | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
Total time: 35 min
Serves: 4


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound red cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tart apple, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons dried cherries, cranberries or golden raisins
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion and cook, stirring until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the cabbage and cook until it begins to wilt, about 5 minutes. Add the apple, dried fruit, vinegar, sugar, a pinch each of salt and pepper, and 1/2 c water and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer over medium-low heat until cabbage is tender and liquid has evaporated, 10–12 minutes. Stir in the butter and season with salt to taste.
