Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 large onions , finely chopped
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 150ml red wine
  • 1 red cabbage (about 900g/2lb), shredded
  • 2 tbsp dark brown soft sugar
  • 2 Bramley apples , peeled and chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish, add the onions and cook on a medium heat for 8-10 mins, then add the star anise and cinnamon stick.

  • STEP 2

    Pour in the wine and let it simmer until slightly reduced. Add the cabbage, sugar and apples, and stir well. Season well, cover and simmer on a low heat for 3 hrs, stirring every now and again.

    Once the cabbage is tender, check the seasoning. Serve in a bowl with the star anise and cinnamon stick on top. Can be made 1-2 days in advance or frozen for up to 4 months – simply reheat on the hob before serving.
