5 stars from 3 ratings of Braised Red Cabbage


The Cooking Corner with Ariel and Noel * 3

 

 

 

Ariel: Hey Noel, did you approve the title to this episode of our cooking corner show?

Noel: Yeah, so what?

Ariel: Ariel and Noel’s Braised Red Cabbage WTF?

Noel: It’s a cooking show.. WTF.. Where’s the fish? We’ve done meats, cheeses, and bread, but no fish.

Ariel: Oh.. Okay, I’m sorry.

Noel: Now since we are on the title, what the hell is a Braised Red Cabbage? Vegetables

from the hood? Vegetables with an attitude?

Ariel: Well, it’s to cook by first browning a small amount of fat, then add water and simmer in a small container.

Noel: Lets get this episode going. I don’t think I can take the word Braise anymore.. Let alone I got to deal with Red Cabbage. I mean come on Ariel.. What kid likes Cabbage?

Ariel: I do.

Noel: Like I said, what kid likes Cabbage?

Ariel: Okay.. Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:

1 T. olive oil- 3 lg. Garlic cloves, mashed - 1 lg. Chopped onion - 1 Turkish bay leaf or a 1/3 California bay leaf- 1/4 tsp. Ground cloves- 1 ½ C. Red wine - 1/4 C. Red wine vinegar- 2T. Light brown sugar- 1 C. Peeled chestnuts. 1 lg. Head of red cabbage, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick. 1 lg. Green apple, peeled ( Granny Smith works good here ) make sure it’s cored and diced.-- Salt to taste.

Noel: I get the wine part of these ingredients.

Ariel: You do?

Noel: Yeah.. Get them drunk so they won’t taste the cabbage.

Ariel: Moving on! In a large pot, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and carrots and saute over medium heat until the onion is translucent.

Noel: Okay wait.. Wait.. What the hell is translucent? You’re barely three and you’re coming up with words like Braised and Translucent?

Ariel: It’s nice to be a girl..huh? LOL now back to the kitchen corner recipe. Where was I?

Noel: The onion being translucent.

Ariel: Add the cabbage and apple and mix well. Add salt to taste, the garlic, bay leaf, cloves, wine, sugar and vinegar. Bring to a low boil, cover, and cook for about one hour. Remove bay leaf and correct seasoning. Then add I cup of your peeled chestnuts to cook in the braising liquid. And there you have it...

Noel: WTF!

Ariel: Maybe next time we’ll do fish.

Hi Frank

Noel: "Okay wait.. Wait.. What the hell is translucent? You’re barely three and you’re coming up with words like Braised and Translucent?"

Frank these are great. Lots of fun and useful at the same time. Like two for the price of one! I like Ariel and Noel and their little bit of "sass" as my grandmother would have said. :)
