Braised Red Cabbage With Fennel Seeds And Bacon
- 1 tablespoon grape seed oil
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 2 pounds shredded cored red cabbage about 16 cups
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 slices bacon cut in quarters
Heat the oil in a 5-quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to cook 1 minute. Stir in the cabbage, water, vinegar, sugar, fennel seeds and salt. Add the bacon.
Bring to a boil then reduce the heat, and simmer, covered, until very tender, about 2 hours. Check the cabbage periodically and stir. If the cabbage looks dry, add a bit more water. Adjust the seasoning.
Cool thoroughly, then refrigerate the cabbage overnight. Reheat over low heat before serving.
