Red Cabbage and Green Beans

These are two favorite vegetables that I usually eat by themselves but never together. When I saw this recipe I thought it was a great idea to combine the two.  Just delicious with my sauerkraut apple latkes and pork tenderloin.

Red Cabbage and Green Beans

  • 1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped into pieces
  • 4-6 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • chopped onion, to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 cups red cabbage, shredded

Cook the prepared beans in water, covered and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a large skillet cook the bacon until crisp. Remove, drain on paper towels. Once cool, break into pieces and set aside. Keep just a few tbsp. of drippings in the skillet. Add the vinegar, sugar, onion, salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and cook for a few minutes.

Add the cabbage, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the beans and cook a few minutes longer or until done to taste. Add the bacon and serve.
