Weight Watcher’s Red Cabbage Two Ways

I have provided two recipes for cooking red cabbage; one in the slow cooker and the other on top of the stove.  They are both very good Weight Watcher’s recipes. The first recipe uses balsamic vinegar and the cabbage is darker in color. The second recipe uses cider vinegar.

Slow Cooker Red Cabbage

  • 2 bacon slices
  • 1-1/4 cups red onion, chopped
  • 8 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp; remove, cover and chill.  Reserve bacon drippings; add onions and saute for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Place onions in a 4-quart slow cooker.  Add cabbage and next 5 ingredients; stir well.  Cover with the lid; cook on high heat setting 3 hours or until tender.  Remove and crumble bacon over each serving.

Serves 6 with 2 points per 1 cup and 1-1/2 tsp. bacon

Red Cabbage Saute

  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 lb. red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 3 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. caraway seed (optional)
  • 1 Granny smith apple, peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the cabbage, onion and sugar.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage wilts, 7-8 minutes.  I cook it covered, for an hour – we like our cabbage cooked a lot more.  Stir in the vinegar and caraway seeds (optional) and cook for an additional 5 minutes.  Add the apple, salt and pepper to taste (I never add) and cook until the apple is tender.

Serves 6 with 1 point per 2/3 cup serving
