We absolutely love German red cabbage, or if you want to call it braised red cabbage.
In Germany, you’ll find that German red cabbage goes by several names, such as Rotkohl, Rotkraut, and Blaukraut, depending on what region in the country you’re in.
It’s perfect with your favorite brats or sausage, or our favorite, Beyond Sausage!
Ingredients and spices vary and may include juniper berries, caraway seeds, fennel, nutmeg, bay leaves, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, dill, red currant jelly or cherry preserves, bacon, whole grain mustard, apple cider or unsweetened apple juice.
If using bacon, dice and cook 4 ounces of thick bacon until it has rendered most of its fat.
Add onions and cook until golden. We prefer sweet onions, but red onions will work just as well.
As Oktoberfest comes to a close, did you get a chance to eat some good German food? Or was it only about the beer? We understand if it’s all about the beer since after all, Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer celebration.
The good thing is that German food keeps on coming, before and after Oktoberfest. We absolutely love German red cabbage, or if you want to call it braised red cabbage. We make it for football games, at holiday gatherings, and whenever we want it!
