Today for St Patty's day I'm making corn beef, but instead of the Irish way of doing cabbage I'm doing it the Dutch way. The smell emanating from my kitchen takes me back to my childhood and my Oma's house, I can't wait for dinner tonight.
1 medium red cabbage, thinly sliced
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp pepper
1TBSP uncooked rice
1 small onion, finely diced
2 sour apples, cut into pieces or use applesauce
1 TBSP lemon juice or vinegar
2 tsp butter
Place cut cabbage in pan and add a little water, cook until tender. Place all ingredients except lemon juice and butter into pan and stir together until simmering. Add lemon juice and butter. Let simmer until ready to eat. ( I simmer for same amount of time as it takes to cook the corned beef, this really develops the flavors)
Ingredients minus the lemon juice and butter
Isn't that color gorgeous?
I jumped the gun and threw everything into the pot to all
cook at the same time. Oh well :)
I'll post a picture later on of the finished product. I wanted
you to have time to make this yummy vegetable!
