Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage


Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

2 tablespoons oil

1 medium-sized head of red cabbage

2 large onions sliced

2 cloves of garlic crushed

200g tomato paste

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 cup water


1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

How to do it

1. Finely shred the cabbage (I use a knife, but you can do it in a food processor using the large cutting blade)

2. In a large pot, heat the oil, add the onions and saute them until they are wilted (do not brown them).

3. Add the crushed garlic cloves to the onions. Stir the garlic into the onions for a few seconds, just until they start cooking, and then add the cabbage and stir together. Continue sauteing for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add the tomato paste, vinegar, sugar, water, a few drops of Tobasco, salt and pepper. Bring it all to the boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 30-45 minutes or until the cabbage is completely soft, stirring occasionally.

4. Add more seasoning if required.

I serve this hot with beef dishes; it goes really well with corned beef.
