St. Patrick’s Day Cabbage and Cherries

Whether St. Patrick's Day is here or not, this flavorful cabbage mixture makes a wonderful side dish anytime! 

This is super quick and easy to prepare, and it's a fantastic addition to meat, chicken, or fish.  Of course, it goes quite nicely with Corned Beef Hash, and it can actually be mixed with it to make a scrumptious, stew-like dish.  

While I wish I could tell you my kids love cabbage, I can only tell you that my 5-year-old does enjoy picking out the dried cherries. Go figure.


Olive oil for the pan

1/2 cup finely sliced red onion

8 cups finely shredded green cabbage (about 1 large head of cabbage)

1/2 cup dried cherries

1/3 cup beef or vegetable broth

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

Salt and pepper to taste


Serves 4 to 6

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Coat a large saute pan with olive oil and place it over medium-high heat.  Add the onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.

Add the cabbage and cook just until it is wilted and beginning to soften, about 3 minutes.

Add the broth and cherries and cook until the broth has completely evaporated, about 3 minutes.

Add the sugar and season generously with salt and pepper.
