What are the nutritional facts?

Hi there! This recipe has been refreshed to show the nutritional information at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

Test Kitchen Team your nutritional info is rubbish! When I clicked onto the "detailed nutrition info", you have 4 T of butter listed as thousands of calories, instead of the actual 408 calories that it is. The counts for brown sugar and apple cider vinegar are also way off. No way is a simple cabbage side dish 700 calories. Please provide CORRECT nutritional info!

A huge success with my family ..... and I loved it.

In Germany we although coat the meat with yellow mustard before filling. And we serve it with potatoe dumplings (Kartoffelkndel) and red cabbage. Yummy...

my braised red cabbage was a Big Hit...everyone one loved it...they left the bowl empty

where and what do u use for cooking wines ie. dry red wine?

Don't ever use cooking wine from the grocer's shelf. They are bitter and overly salty. Go to a wine shop and get a bottle of cabernet (red) and pinot grigio if you need white. Good luck.

sounds good and will try. can I add some beets and tomato to make a cabbage and beet soup?

That is the Northwest German Rotkohl. Very good.

2-Minute Slaw

It doesn't get more simple or classic than our 2-Minute Slaw. It's great for summertime BBQs on those lazy, sun-drenched days. So when the meat comes of the grill and you realize you forgot the slaw, no worries... it'll be done in a wink!
