Here is another German dish that my in laws make that I quickly acquired a liking for. It's a great side dish to the Rouladen recipe. I hope you like it as much as I do.
1 shredded red cabbage
1 lb. bacon, chopped
2-3 onion, chopped
Olive oil (for shine)
4-5 apples, cut up in ½ -1 inch pieces
Vinegar or lemon juice
6 bay leaves, broken in half for more flavor
Fry onion and bacon in large pot until bacon is a bit crispy. Add red cabbage, apples, and bay leaves. Add aprox. 3 T. sugar. Simmer for approx. 2-3 hours on low heat stirring often. When cabbage is fully cooked, add the vinegar or lemon juice when pot is off the burner. This dish will double in flavor if served the next day.
