Tangy Braised Cabbage Recipe

A healthy and delicious side dish.


  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 2 large tart apple, peeled, cored, finely diced
  • 1 head of cabbage, coarsely chopped or shredded, about 8 cups
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • salt, to taste


In a Dutch oven, heat butter over low heat; add onion and apple; sauté for about 7 to 10 minutes, or until soft. Add cabbage, pepper, vinegar, and mirin; toss to blend well.

Cover tightly and place in over for 30 minutes at 425 ℉. Reduce heat to 375 ℉ and bake for another hour, or until the cabbage is thoroughly tender; stir occasionally as it cooks. Add salt to taste.
