Bavarian Braised Cabbage is so incredibly delicious!
Yum

Looking for an easy braised cabbage recipe?  Bayrisches Weisskraut, aka Bavarian Cabbage, comes from the Bavarian region of German. Sauerkraut seems to be the most commonly thought of German cabbage recipe. This, however, is a very easy way how to cook cabbage and is often used as a side dish to accompany many German meals.

There's a certain sweet/sourness to this braised cabbage dish that's like eating candy! It really does taste great with almost anything!

Oma's Bavarian Braised Cabbage Recipe❤️

Ingredients:

  • 2 - 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ large white (green) cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1 cup water or broth
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar (to taste, optional)

Instructions:

  • In large pot, heat olive oil. Add onions and brown slightly.
  • Add sugar and let caramelize.
  • Add cabbage, garlic, caraway seeds, and water or broth. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bring to boil and simmer, covered, about ½ hour or until cabbage is tender, stirring occasionally and adding extra water if needed.
  • Season with more salt and pepper if necessary and add vinegar if desired.

Hints:

  • To thicken sauce, dissolve 1 - 2 Tbsp corn starch in a bit of cold water. Slowly add just enough to boiling liquid until thickened.
  • Make sure you use vegetable broth if you're making this vegan. If not, either chicken or beef broth works really well.

How is this different than other braised cabbage recipes? First, browning some of the cabbage enhances the flavor as well as providing some nice color of the dish. Secondly, the seasonings make this dish.

If you like your cabbage a bit tangy, do add a touch of vinegar at the end. The resulting sweet-sour taste is one I just love - I remember it so well from my Mutti's kitchen. 

 

Vegan Recipe

It certainly can be an issue to make German-tasting foods that taste traditional when making them vegan. This recipe works well, if one is careful to use a vegan vegetable broth. 


Braising is ...

Braising is the method whereby meat or vegetables are first browned, after which a small amount of liquid is added. Then, slowly simmered until the meat or vegetables are tender.

Browning (or caramelizing) the onions gives such a delicious flavor to this dish. If you have time, add the cabbage to these browned onions and continue browning the cabbage for a little while.

The caraway seed isn't just in there for flavor! 

Did you know that adding caraway seed is a very natural way for helping to reduce the 'gas' problem that seems to follow some people when eating cabbage!
