This side goes well with roasted pork or turkey.

Very good recipe! I added twice the cider vinegar, and used probably a total of 3tsp salt. I also used green cabbage, since that's what I had. My family is very impressed, my mom's side is from Germany and my mother was blown away by this. I am having it with pierogi and vegetarian sausage.

Question!! The recipe says the apple should be halved, cored and sliced. Sliced how? Thin, matchstick pieces, thick pieces like half moons or thin half moon pieces, diced...? And, although it doesn't say to peel the apple, should the apple be peeled? Sorry, I'm not a cook, never made this dish before. Any answers are much appreciated!

I have made this three times, the first time I followed the directions exactly. The second and third time I used green cabbage as that is what I had. It works well both ways. I like to serve it with baked chicken thighs the first day and with smoked sausage the second day. My adult children find a way to stop by when I make this. Yum!

I used two small apples, otherwise I made exactly as recipe is written. This is simple, delicious, and paired perfectly with the schnitzel I also made.

I think it needed more vinegar and sugar. Nothing to get excited about. But isn't horrible either. It is just cabbage.

Delicious. I could have eaten the entire thing for my dinner. No main dish required! I made it pretty much exactly as planned, though I added an extra apple half and left the peels on the apple for the fiber and taste. Would be perfect with pork.

I just finished making this recipe. Sad to say we (family) hate it. I am not a picky eater and love most foods. I even love liver if that gives a point of reference. I just don't like the flavors at all. I love fried apples and I love fried green cabbage. I made this to try something from my German roots. I will have to say that purple cabbage never looked appetizing to me in the store. Is there any thing I can add this to so that it won't go to waste?

I was very happy with this simple recipe. I used white wine vinegar as a substitute and it worked fine. I also added a pinch of ground cloves as I think this kind of recipe lends itself well to that. Despite the sugar addition and the apples, the result was not too sweet, the sour punch of the vinegar balanced it out nicely. I would definitely make this again. Great with sausages and mashed potato!

This recipe is delicious! I am making it yet again for dinner tonight. It really complements so many meats. I have tried other red cabbage recipe but this is by far the best. Cudos Martha!

Easy, delicious and SO GOOD with roasted sweet potatoes and pork chops, pork loin, or even with roast chicken. This is one of my absolute favorite autumn dishes.
