Monday Munchies: Sweet & Sour Red Cabbage

With Christmas just around the corner we’re thinking of all the yummy things we have to cook up over the holiday period. One of our favourite things to serve up on Christmas day is red cabbage – not the type your granny used to give you, but with a good kick of flavour. Give it a go and let us know how it turns out with #cookmintmag.


One 2-pound red cabbage
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
6 Tbsp sugar
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper


1 Cut the cabbage in half, cutting through the core as you do this. Cut the cabbage halves in half again, again through the core. Cut out the core from the quartered cabbage and discard. Thinly slice the cabbage.

2 Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced red cabbage and toss to coat with the butter. Sauté until slightly wilted, about 5 minutes.

3 Sprinkle sugar over the cabbage and toss to coat evenly. Add the balsamic vinegar to the pot. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium low. Cover and simmer until the cabbage is completely tender, stirring often, about 30 minutes total.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.
