  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 3-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 head red cabbage (about 2 1/2 lb.), cut into 8 wedges, core intact


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a heavy ovenproof saucepan, heat oil. Cook shallot and ginger over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add vinegar and brown sugar. Stir in chicken stock, water, and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper. Add cabbage.

  2. Bring to a boil. Cover; transfer to oven and braise until cabbage is tender, 45 to 50 minutes.

  3. Remove cabbage with a slotted spoon and place on a serving platter; discard bay leaf. Simmer remaining liquid over medium-high heat until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Spoon sauce over cabbage.
