Braised Red Cabbage with Apple and Onion

Rating: 3.5 stars 442
The combination of cabbage and apples is what makes this easy braised cabbage side dish a classic favorite. The fruity and savory mix softens in a knob of butter before ribbons of cabbage are added to the pot. A touch of cider vinegar deepens the apple flavor, while sugar brings a subtle sweetness to the meltingly tender cabbage. Just a quick 25-minute simmer and this fragrant, vibrant dish is table-ready.

Cayenne pepper adds an earthy kick to the honey mustard vinaigrette in this fresh side dish. The slaw offers a crisp counterpoint in our Pulled BBQ-Chicken Sandwiches and is also delectable served solo.

Roasted Salmon, Red Cabbage, and New Potatoes

Rating: 3 stars 296
The cabbage and potatoes go into the oven first in this sheet-pan supper. A meaty salmon fillet flavored with mustard, horseradish, and lemon zest is then roasted atop the vegetables.

Slow-Cooker Pork Chop

Pork chops cut from the shoulder have more connective tissues that break down as they cook, making them a great choice for a low and slow cook. Browning the bacon and pork chops in a pan first gives this dish layers of added flavor.
