German Rotkohl - Spiced Red Cabbage With Apples and Wine
105 mins (prep 15, cooking 90)
13 ingredients
6-8 servings
Our family favorite Rotkohl dish, in the traditional German style (with a few flourishes)! Delicious!! Red cabbage, apples, aromatic spices and wine---this dish is sure to please! Wonderful served with holiday roast turkey, beef, or ham dishes -or- with bratwurst, weisswurst or wienerwurst sausages. Tip: For a delicious & traditional European feast serve the Rotkohl with German Meatballs Konigsberger Klopse (German Meatballs in Creamy Caper Sauce), Beef Rouladen Mom's Traditional German Beef Rouladen (Rinderrouladen), Bavarian Sauerbraten Traditional Bavarian Beef Sauerbraten, Wiener Schnitzel Wiener Schnitzel, or Swedish Meatballs, along with boiled new potatoes or buttered spaetzle noodles sprinkled with fresh snipped parsley. A great make-ahead dish that freezes & reheats beautifully, and actually tastes best after flavors have had a chance to marry (a day or two after cooking). I like to make two batches at a time, one for now and one to freeze for future meals. I hope you enjoy as much as we do. As my mother made it, with adaptations from the book "Aquavit and the New Scandinavian Cuisine" by James Beard Award-Winning Chef Marcus Samuelsson.
