This tasty, easy and inexpensive cabbage recipe is an attractive Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish.

1/2 pound bacon
2 cans beef broth
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed firmly
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper, freshly cracked and ground
2-1/2 – 3 pounds red cabbage

Wash, core and coarsely shred the cabbage. Place a Dutch oven over medium-high heat and cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon to drain and cool. With the heat still at medium-high, add about a cup of the beef broth and scrape the pan to lift the browning bits of bacon to deglaze the pan. Add the remaining broth, brown sugar, vinegar salt and pepper to the pan and cook until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil.

Add the cabbage and return to boiling and then immediately reduce the heat to a medium-low simmer. Cover the Dutch oven and simmer for 25 – 30 minutes, until the cabbage is tender but not mushy.

Transfer the cabbage to a warmed serving bowl and crumble the bacon over the top to garnish.

Yield: 12 – 16 servings
