Prep Time 10 mins
Cooking Time 40 mins




  1. Thinly slice cabbage, and small dice onion and apple.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot and add onion. Cook on low heat until it begins to brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients into the pot and stir to combine. Cover and let simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the bottom is browning too quickly before the cabbage is cooked to desired tenderness, add a splash of water and continue cooking covered.
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Add more sweetener for more sweetness, more apple cider vinegar for more sourness etc.
  5. Serve with roasts or protein of choice. Enjoy!
