Braised Red Cabbage

Jeff DietzlerOne Great Dish
A while back, as I’m sure you’ll recall, I spoke with Chef Jeff Dietzler at Jax Fish House and Oyster Bar and wrote in that blog that he does even cook at home when he has time.  One thing that creative chefs do is reach into their memory banks and recreate.  This recipe is an example of that and a perfect wintry pick-me-up as well.

Braised Red Cabbage


Ingredients:
1 head red cabbage, finely sliced                             
2 carrots, medium grate on box grater  
2 apples, granny smith, medium grate   
1 red onion, small dice                  
½ t. nutmeg                                                                       
½ t. coriander, ground
1 T. salt, kosher                                                                
2 t. black pepper, ground                                                            

½ C. red wine vinegar                                                    
½ C. apple cider Vinegar                                               
1 C red cooking wine                                     
½ C brown sugar                                              
2 quarts vegetable stock                                              
½ C. oil, rice bran                                                                             


Directions:
1.)  In a medium sized sauce pot, place rice bran oil over medium- high heat.
2.)  Sweat onion in oil for one minute. Next, add cabbage, carrot, apple, nutmeg and coriander. Sweat for another two minutes. 
3.)  Deglaze with red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and red wine. Add brown sugar, salt, pepper and stock. 
4.)  Bring to a boil and then simmer until almost all of the liquid is gone. 

Jeff said, "I chose this recipe because we have recently added it to our menu and it is perfect for winter weather. My grandmother gave me the recipe – she made it every Christmas Eve for our traditional dinner.  As I’d walk in the door, the smell of this braised cabbage would be the first thing I noticed. I love the smell and flavors of the sweetness, sourness and earthiness. So delicious."
