I used unfiltered apple cider vinegar and substituted stevia drops for sugar and a wee bit more cabbage and mustard seed than called for in the recipe and it was absolutely delicious and so easy. I will be adding it to my repertoire of quick, healthy basics.  Thanks!<br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yuck. Tasted like dirt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used a whole red cabbage, 1/3c apple cider vinegar, refined olive oil (not extra virgin) and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Family loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked it and added apples to the recipe when I sauted the onions. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was just absolutely delicious! I was looking for a side dish recipe that my vegetarian parents could eat and this was just perfect. They loved it and have requested that I make it again :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was alright - I didn't love it and I do typically love cabbage. I guess I like it braised with stock better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! I initially doubled the cabbage but not the rest of the ingredients. Bland, so I then doubled everything else. Awesome!! Used mustard powder; didn't have mustard seeds. My husband said he'd never eaten red cabbage that he'd actually liked before this. He loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was fantastic. It needed salt for sure and I used mustard powder instead of mustard seed. The color was amazing too. We had it with grilled chicken. I had a huge amount of red cabbage so I made a double batch since we enjoyed the first round so much and my husband wanted more and then I offered some up to my bachelor neighbor who loves my cooking and he devoured it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am always looking for new ideas on how to cook cabbage and this really works for a cold winter day. I adjusted recipe to fit our taste. I reduced sugar to 1 tsp, vinegar to 1/4 cup and used ground mustard powder because that's what I had. I also substituted leeks instead of onion. I will make this tasty dish again. It was very easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great and so easy. Will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quite Delicious! The Only modification we made was using green cabbage that was already shredded (it was a mix for coleslaw that had small amounts of red cabbage &amp; carrots). As another poster suggested I heated the mustard seed in the oil before adding the onions. Will plan to make again. Served it with some maple salmon but would be good with a variety of entrees. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was simple to make and turned out as expected. The sweetness mitigated the awful taste of the cabbage, but it was a bit of a lipstick-on-a-pig scenario. i just don't like cabbage. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! This totally hit the spot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious! I had a 1/2 head of red cabbage sitting around from another recipe. So good!!!!! Used Stevia instead of sugar. Didn't have mustard seed so I used ground mustard, Will def make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fabulous and the color was beautiful. Made it exactly as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made some minor adjustments to fit my taste, and I REALLY LOVED this dish. I am craving it. I reduced the vinegar and sugar, and used the entire head of cabbage. (Half a cabbage? What a joke. The other half would have just rotted in my fridge till I remembered to throw it out. Used 1/4 c vinegar because my family is not crazy for that taste. (I am. Reduced the sugar to 1 level tablespoon because I don't like sugary sweetness in certain dishes like coleslaw and cornbread. The result, PERFECTLY UNDERSTATED. Also next time I will heat the mustard seeds in the oil before the onion. That is sort of an Indian method of cooking with spices that I think works very well. There will be many "next time"'s for this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it. Used small container of applesauce instead of the 2 T. of sugar. Good, crunchy red cabbage with lots of flavor. Served it with Paula Dean's Sauerkraut and Pork Ribs. Really good. It will be a staple in our household. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ah-mazing!! Cutting out sugar so substituted with honey and it was incredible!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing!! It was so quick and easy and absolutely delicious! I didn't have mustard seed so I just put in 1 tablespoon of grey poupon. This is my new favorite recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
All I can say is OMG! I substituted Balsalmic vinegar but still wow. So much flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good basic recipe! Way too much vinegar to my taste though. I doubled the recipe and change a few things. I used 2 Tbsp oil, 1 Tbsp + 1tsp raw sugar and 3 Tbsp homemade balsamic vinegar (just wanted to use it all up + 1 Tbsp cider vinegar. I also added 1 chopped Gravenstine apple (I only had one. Go easy on vinegar, add I Tbsp at a time and taste. At first I wasn't sure about mustard seed, should it be whole or ground. I ended up adding ground and it tasted fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made it today and wow!! just like my mom used to make. Great German flavor with very little work. I added 2 sliced apples because I remember my mom put apples in hers. Thanks Rachael for bringing back such a good memory!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful side dish with the Sauerbraten and potato pancakes I made. I added one apple, but then did include the almost 2TBLS of sugar. The S&amp;P is important too. Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I did everything I could to doctor up this recipe and we still hated it. It all went in the trash. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE this recipe... I added 2 Fuji apples (peeled, cored and thinly sliced after the onions had sauteed for 3 minutes and reduced the sugar by 1/2 (to 1TBS of raw sugar. The end product was great tangy red cabbage, full of nutrition and just a touch of natural sweetness. Served it with Whole Foods Tuscan Sausage and a side of boiled red potatoes with butter, sour cream and chives....easy-peezy-lemon-squeezy! ;-D item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome receipt very simple to make, try it with goat cheese and less vinger! : item not reviewed by moderator and published

Fabulous! I added a thinly sliced green apple. Was out of mustard seed so used a tsp of brown mustard. It cooked up in a snap and was really great. Will make this one more often. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Had some red cabbage that needed to be used and found this recipe. I substituted raspberry pear vinegar for the apple cider vinegar and loved it. Also I did not add the mustard seed. The dish was yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Trying to cut costs by reducing the meat and increasing the vegetables so I appreciate how ingredient light this recipe is. I only gave it 4 stars because the flavor seems like it's lacking in some way as it is. I did try it with dijon mustard, good substitute. My favorite way is to use a deli wasabi mustard in place of the seeds and mix the cabbage - prepared first - into my already cooked rice to use as a base for my stir fry and other asian dishes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I hate to be negative since almost everybody else loved this. I think it is just okay because, to me, there is way too much vinegar. I couldn't taste anything else. I think next time I do this recipe I will do like some others and add Dijon mustard to the vinegar instead of mustard seeds. I couldn't even taste the mustard seeds. I think with a little personal modifications I could really like this dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great red cabbage recipe. Use 2 T. granulated Splenda, (not heaping), and it is a perfect dish for anyone with health issues. Perfect for a diet. I served it with grilled pork chops, seasoned black beans, and a cucumber and tomato salad. Yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was just too sweet for me. I ended up adding a little salt to cut the sugar and it was ok, but I think next time i'll do what someone else suggested and either just saute is like regular or cut the sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did this without mustard seed as I forgot to put it in. Really nice with a grilled pork chop - no fuss and would keep it handy for the net time I have cabbage. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of those nights I needed dinner quick. Improvised with green cabbage and mustard powder and threw in some caraway seeds for good measure. Served with cheese kielbasa and boiled potatos with parsley and butter. It was like Das Fest House in less than 30 minutes! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cabbage is simple and tasty. It has a lot of crunch left in it yet is well done. The sweet/sour is not overdone. The best part is that I was able to prepare it at the last minute with ingredients that were on hand. No apples required!!! This is one that will be repeated a lot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being Chinese, we have work wit cabbage alot. This recipe is so yummy! My hubby always wants more veggies so he will lovw this. Thank you Rach!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I haven't made or really had cooked red cabbage, but I had some left over that I needed to use. This recipe had good reviews so I thought I would give it a try. My kids (3 &amp; 5) ate it just fine, but both my husband and I thought it was too sweet. We ate it but I think next time I will just saute it with salt and pepper in some olive oil or butter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great, affordable alternative as a side dish. It has a lot of flavor and very little fat. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I am not much for red cabbage or anything with vinager in it, but this was outstanding. My parents don't think I can cook. Dad ate most of the cabbage and loved it. I will make this again.
