Blau Kabis

I made my German cabbage recipe a couple of days ago …

Blau Kabis (Blue Cabbage)


1 large head red cabbage, cut in 1″ chunks
2 or 3 apples, cored, peeled and quartered
1/2 lb bacon, cut in half strips
1/4 cup sugar
salt and pepper to taste


In a large heavy pot, throw it all in and add water just until you can see it. Set on the stove and bring to a boil. Simmer for several hours.


Drain and serve hot as a veggie with pork chops or pork roast. I got lazy and just put mine in a bowl this time and called it supper. Love this stuff. The bacon cooks as it simmers and gives a smoky flavour, the apple gives the sweetness and the cabbage is well, just cabbage, but all the gassiness (sp?) is removed by the sugar that was added.


The German people quite often mix fruits and veggies together for a main meal. I have another recipe called Birnen, Bohnen und Speck (Pears, Beans and Bacon) that is super good, too.

Hope you try this one – it is delicious and a new way to enjoy cabbage.
