Stewed green cabbage is a rich and delicious side dish, ideal to be enjoyed hot and lightly sautéed during a cold late autumnal evening. Usually used to prepare sauerkraut, green cabbage proves to be a versatile and multi-faceted vegetable; for this recipe it is cut into thin strips, browned in a pan with bacon and onion and then gently stewed by gradually adding homemade vegetable broth. The final result will be a preparation with a pleasantly crunchy, fragrant and very tasty consistency, perfect to accompany a second course of white meat or red meat, or eggs. Also excellent as a light and well balanced main course to be served with slices of toasted bread. So let’s find out how to prepare it in the best way by following our recipe step by step.
