"With a small head of red cabbage or half of a large one you can prepare a delicate sweet-and-sour red cabbage. The grated pear dissolves and virtually disappears in the braised cabbage, contributing a gentle sweetness".

Ingredients

3/4 pound red cabbage, in 2 or 3 wedges, cored
1 large Bosc or Bartlett Pear (8 to 10 ounces)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter in small pieces
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method
  • Slice the cabbage wedges finely by hand. Transfer to a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Quarter, core and peel the pear.
  • Grate the pear on the coarse side of a four-sided grater. Add to the saucepan along with the butter, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, brown sugar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring often until cabbage is tender, about 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding another splash of balsamic vinegar if necessary.
