Slow Cooked Red Cabbage with Sausages

Serves 8.  Very good with Turkey or Goose.


2 tbsp olive oil

300g good quality cocktail sausages

1 finely sliced red onion

1kg thinly sliced red cabbage

2-3 tbsp dark muscovado sugar

250ml red wine

shake of chilli sauce


1.  heat the oil in a large pan and brown the sausages all over.  add

the onion and cook until softened.  add the cabbage, sugar, red

wine, a pinch of salt and a shake of chilli sauce.  cover the pan and

cook over a gentle heat for about an hour, stirring now and then,

until the cabbage is softened.

2.  for the last few minutes, take the lid off the pan and raise

the heat to boil down the juices, so that they just coat the

cabbage.  check seasoning.  This dish can be made a few days ahead

of time and gently reheated before serving.
