Braised Red Cabbage with Bacon
My family loves shredded red (purple) cabbage in salads for the crunch and colour. Since I’m personally not too fond of raw cabbage, I have been cooking them for myself instead. In this recipe, the red cabbage is simmered in bacon fats, chicken stock and red wine vinegar. The resultant braised red cabbage tastes almost like pickled cabbage.

This braised red cabbage can be served as a side-dish to any meal. Yes, even a Chinese meal because it goes well with rice. I also love to use them as a salad topping in my grain bowl (pictured above). The leftover cooked cabbage keeps very well in the fridge and reheats easily in the microwave, making it perfect for meal prepping.
One of my favourite winter veggies! Must be really great with bacon :-)
I also usually cook my cabbage esp if I am putting them in salad-grain bowls. I use raw cabbage in sandwiches/wraps (since the drier, the better for sandwiches/wraps) or coleslaw (combination of green and red cabbage – so good!)
You should not be surprised if I tell you that I also make a duck salad-meal bowl quite recently. ;p food telepathy, my online food buddy
Hi telepathic food buddy, you don’t happen to make a roast pork meal bowl recently? :p
