Rotkohl - Braised Red Cabbage
Whether or not you celebrate Oktoberfest, it's a wonderful time to enjoy some German cuisine. One of our perennial favorites is Rotkohl, or braised red cabbage. This version is simple to make, best if made ahead, and freezes well. We enjoy this with many cuts of pork, including bratwurst, schnitzel, or grilled chops, as shown here. Duck would also be a good choice. The Maximin Grunhauser Riesling Monopole 2018 was a delicious pairing. And you can see Jim's video review of the Monopole in wine reviews.... Guten Appetit! Jim
Serves 6 - 8
4 medium slices smoked bacon, cut across the short edge into thin strips.
In large dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until pieces are crisp. Add onions, cinnamon, bay leaves, and salt and mix to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender, about 8 minutes.
