Nadia and Kaye Disaster Chef Simple Recipes for Cooks Who Can'tKaye doesn’t really have the patience to cook anything long and slow (unless it’s in her beloved slow-cooker), so this is a speeded-up version of an old classic. It’s excellent on a plate with regular or veggie sausages.

  • Yield: 6 Servings


  • small knob of unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) hot chicken stock
  • 1¾ oz (50 g) soft brown sugar or any sugar you’ve got
  • 2½ fl oz (75 ml) white wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into wedges
How to Make It
  1. Melt the butter over a medium heat in a lidded heavy-based saucepan, and fry the onion until it becomes translucent.
  2. Add the cabbage, bay leaves, cinnamon, hot stock, sugar, and vinegar, and bring to the boil, then cover and reduce the heat to a low simmer for 30 minutes (use a heat diffuser)
  3. Stir in the apples and cook for another 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and serve. This is good with Sticky Sausage & Onion Bake.
