Gordon Ramsay's braised red cabbage is a low-fat delicious Christmas side dish. It has slow cooked cabbage braised with the red wine vinegar and flavored with cinnamon, star anise, sugar, and cloves. The apples add a mild sour taste to the cabbage and the red wine vinegar adds a deep color and a fruity-tart flavor to this Christmas dish.
To a casserole dish over medium heat, add butter, cabbage and apples. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes until cabbage and apples are soft.
Add sugar, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice along with the lemon zest to the casserole dish. Cook for a few minutes. Then Cover it with wet and crumpled baking paper and bake in the preheated oven (160 C) for about 1.5 hours (stirring every 30 minutes).
Let the apples and cabbage get tender, and let the juice reduce. Then, remove from the oven and serve immediately. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheat it to serve.
