Heat a heavy casserole. Add peanut oil. Saute the red onion until translucent. Sprinkle in brown sugar and cook for a few minutes until it starts to caramelize. Add sliced apples and deglaze with the red wine vinegar. Bring to a boil. Add red wine and orange juice, cinnamon stick, ginger powder and salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add red cabbage and continue to cook for about 10 minutes on top of the stove. Cover cabbage with foil and cook in 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. Remove. Taste, and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
