Sautéed cabbage doesn’t need to be boring. Caramelized onions add a deep sweetness and cooking the carrots until slightly charred concentrates the flavor. The apples add a tart fruity-ness that make this a fun family dish.
Sautéed cabbage with carrots and apples serves 4-6 people
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small cabbage
1 apple ( I used a Fuji apple)
½ cup water, chicken broth or apple juice.
Ground ginger (optional)
Slice the onions, carrot and cabbage.
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Cook the onion over medium heat until it’s caramelized. Add carrots and cook until they are tender and a little bit brown. Add sliced cabbage and water (or broth, or apple juice) to the pan and stir. Cover and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat until everything is tender and liquid has cooked out. Slice the apple. Push the contents of the pan to one side; add the apple to the empty side and sauté until golden. Add salt and ginger (if using) and serve.
