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.
