German Cabbage and Onion
Today I have another great vegetable side dish for you! We love vegetables here, as you all probably know. I love to encourage people to eat more vegetables by providing ideas and recipes to prepare them. We have a constant stream of fresh produce coming in thanks to Full Circle (If you are interested check out this post for more info) so we are always cooking up new vegetable side dishes.
This dish is simple, affordable, healthy and delicious. It’s one of our personal favorites. Perfect with a nice thick steak or pork chop. I served this batch with a steak that I froze 2 months ago from this post and cooked from frozen using the fool-proof method I describe there. It was tender, juicy and perfect to go with a big heaping portion of cabbage and onion.

This recipe is super easy. Anyone can do it. It doesn’t require much prep time and the cooking is very hands-off. All you have to do is slice a cabbage and an onion. Then, throw them in a pot with light seasoning and mostly forget about it while you finish cooking dinner. Cabbage and onion are both very cheap and available year round so we end up eating this all the time.
