Red Cabbage

A bittersweet flavor with a rich and extremely moreish taste.

Servings 6 persons, Preparation time 20 minutes, Cooking time: 68 minutes


  • Tablespoon olive oil
  • 250 grams of smoked streaky bacon, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon bashed fennel seeds
  • 1 onion peeled and sliced
  • 2 apples peeled and chopped
  • 1 kilogram red cabbage, chopped into chunks
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 150 millilitre balsamic vinegar
  • 50 grams of butter
  • A handful of chopped parsley leaves


  • Preheat the HomeCooker for 3 minutes at 175°C.
  • Pour the oil into the pan and add the bacon and fennel seeds.
  • Set the timer to 3 minutes at 175°C.
  • When time's up, add the onion and continue to cook (lid on) for 5 minutes at 175°C until golden and sticky.
  • Add the apple, followed by the chopped cabbage, salt and pepper, and the vinegar.
  • Put the lid back on and continue to cook on 110°C at 60 minutes.
  • You'll end up with a gorgeously sticky-sweet cabbage dish that you'll want to eat immediately, straight out of the pan! Or, if you can wait long enough, scoop it into a serving dish, pop the butter on top and sprinkle over the parsley.
  • Chef’s tip: Another way of cooking red cabbage is to stir-fry it. Simply add 1 tbsp olive oil into the HomeCooker. Then add your cabbage and other veg and stir-fry for 6 to 10 minutes at 250°C until the leaves are crisp. This is a great way of locking in all that nutritional value without cooking it out.
