Updated on April 1, 2014
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.

      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. :)

      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?"

      LMAO. You should publish a Ariel and Noel Cookbook. Move over Emeril Lagasse.

      Voted up up and away.

      Take care :)
