2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 small Onions Sliced
2 pounds red cabbage -- shredded
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon salt -- to taste
1 teaspoon sugar
1 large apple tart
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup beef broth -- hot

Preparation / Directions:

* Core and peel apple, then fine chop it. Heat oil in a Dutch oven and sauté onions 3 minutes. Add cabbage and immediately pour vinegar over cabbage to prevent it from losing its red color. Sprinkle with salt and sugar. Add chopped apple or applesauce and a piece of salt pork. Pour in red wine and hot beef broth. Cover and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes. Cabbage should be just tender, not soft. Shortly before end of cooking time, remove salt pork; cube and return it to the cabbage if desired. Correct seasonings and serve.
