How to cook pressure cooker Red cabbage and apple
This is a
very easy dish to prepare and is a perfect accompaniment to autumn or winter!
According to the BBC, you should choose a cabbage that is heavy, shiny and has crispy leaves, avoid any that have swollen leaves or outer layers already removed.
To prepare your red cabbage, you must first remove the hard outer leaves. Then you need to remove the white inner core, it’s hard and you don’t want to eat that part.

You can cut it with a big,
sharp knife, or you can put big wedges in your food processor with the cutting blade and crush it like that if you prefer. You don’t want to cut it too small, it doesn’t need to be sliced as small as you would for the salad mix, so make the pieces a little bigger.
Once you have all the
other ingredients prepared, including onions and apple, you can start by adding the liquids to the inner pot of your instant cooker or another electric pressure cooker, and then simply overlay the ingredients little by little until they are all in the pot, the complete and detailed instructions are in the recipe below.
Health Benefits of Red Cabbage
I don’t know about you, but growing up I didn’t really rate cabbage. Mainly because I associated it with bad school dinners where cabbage was always overcooked and not something anyone wanted for lunch!
Despite being highly defamed, red cabbage is full of vitamin C that boosts the healthy immune system, rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients that fight inflammation, and vitamin K.
It’s also great food for those of us who need help promoting a healthy gut (that’s me!). I’ve done sauerkraut with it in the past and it was particularly enjoyable that way and also had the benefit of being full of natural, healthy probiotics.
to serve with red cabbage
I love serving my red cabbage and apple recipe with pot roasts or my whole chicken Instant Pot, it’s a little different from old cabbage! It would also be fabulous with any type of meat dish like Company Pot Roast, Pulled Pork or Cilantro Lime Chicken.
Kitchen items you’ll need for
To make this recipe you will need an electric pressure cooker, I have the multifunctional Instant Pot Duo 6QT pressure cooker and I really love it, especially the fact that it has a stainless steel insert instead of non-stick like some other brands.
While I use it primarily as a pressure cooker (I love putting my dinners on the table FAST!) it can also double as a pot rice cooker, a slow cooker, a yogurt machine and a steamer.
