Simply braised red cabbage

With fall here it is time for braised red cabbage so here is a very quick and simple recipe.

1 part red onion, julienned
3 parts red cabbage, julienned and core removed
1 part granny smith apple, cored, peeled, cut in 2"X2" cubes
Olive oil for sauteeing
Salt and pepper to taste
Red wine vinegar.....splash
Sugar to taste

-Heat a flat bottomed pan over medium heat and add a bit of oil for cooking. 
-Add your onions, cabbage, salt and pepper and saute, stirring frequently for about 10 minutes making sure it does not brown. NOTE-make sure the cabbage and onions are not more than an inch deep.  If so, you need a wider based pan.
-Add the apples and saute until soft, but firm....about 5-10 minutes
-Add the sugar and vinegar.  You do not want the cabbage too acidic and too sweet so add a splash of vinegar to start and a large pinch of sugar

This is great with pork
