Red Cabbage with Mulled Port & Pears

Serves 8: Prep 25mins: Cook 2 hours


1 Large Red Cabbage, quartered, cored and thinly sliced

1 Large Onion , sliced

200ml Port

1 Large Cinnamon Stick

Pinch Ground Cloves

2 Star Anise

2 tbsp Soft Brown Sugar

1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar

4 Pears , diced


Put all the ingredients except the pears in a large pan and cover with a tight- fitting lid. Cook on a low heat for 1 hr, then stir through the pears. Cover and cook for 1 hr more until the cabbage is really tender. If at any point the cabbage looks dry, add a splash of water. If there is still liquid in the pan at the end, turn the heat right up to evaporate it. Season with a little salt and serve. The cabbage can be prepared ahead and either chilled or frozen. Then reheat in the pan or in a microwave.

(Perfect for making pre Christmas )
