Three entrées featuring red cabbage are slow-cooker pork with sweet-sour cabbage, sautéed red cabbage with onions, and smoked sausage and linguine with red cabbage. Sweet-and-sour red cabbage is a traditional side dish in Austria and Germany.
Betty Crocker's recipe combines the pork and cabbage with an onion, apple, brown sugar, cider vinegar and salt in a slow cooker. Kielbasa, caramelized onions, Swiss chard and caraway seeds go with the red cabbage in the Better Homes & Gardens recipe. The linguine and red cabbage dish from "Food & Wine" magazine involves cooking the cabbage over low heat in olive oil with onions and garlic. It then goes on the cooked linguine and is itself topped with salt, pepper and feta cheese. The sweet-and-sour side dish is a traditional Austrian and German recipe using butter, sugar, balsamic vinegar, kosher salt and black pepper.
