Gotta have a good old-fashioned cabbage dish for Oktoberfest--after all, green cabbage, or weisskraut, is practically synonymous with German cuisine. This is one of those simple preparations busy cooks really appreciate. Once the ingredients are combined in the skillet, the cooking hardly requires much attention at all. This cabbage dish zings with zesty flavors and makes an excellent choice to accompany the heartier entrees.
GERMAN STYLE SWEET AND SOUR GREEN CABBAGE
Yield: 4 to 5 servings
- Combine all the ingredients, except the parsley and apple, in a large, deep skillet. Cover the pan and bring to a vigorous boil over high heat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes to blend the flavors.
- Reduce the heat to medium or medium-low and simmer gently for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cabbage is softened. Check frequently to make sure there is sufficient liquid in the pan. Do not allow the cabbage to run dry.
- Transfer the cabbage to an attractive serving bowl and garnish with the cluster of parsley and an apple slice brushed with lemon juice to prevent browning.
