Instant Pot Braised Red Cabbage is a quick side dish that goes well with roast duck, chicken, sausages or pork. This delicious sweet and sour braised cabbage only needs to be cooked 5 minutes under pressure.
Dice the onion. Cut the cabbage in half, remove the hard parts and shred thinly.
When you have everything prepared turn on Instant Pot and press SAUTE (normal heat). Add the sugar and shake the inner pot so that the sugar is spread evenly across the bottom. Leave the sugar melt and wait until it caramelizes (turns brown) but make sure not to burn it.
Now pour in the oil and add onion. Mix and sauté for a minute before adding shredded cabbage, water, caraway seeds and salt. Stir well.
Lock the lid and turn the steam release valve to SEALING. Press MANUAL button, adjust the pressure to high (if needed) and time to 5 minutes.
When the time is up, wait 10 minutes before releasing the pressure manually. The steam is hot so be careful and use a damp kitchen towel to do so.
Now add vinegar and mix well. Taste it and season to your taste by adding more salt, sugar or vinegar.
Optional: If you feel like there is too much liquid, turn on the SAUTE button and let it cook for a further 5 minutes.
Best served warm!
This recipe was created for a 6-quat/6-liter Instant Pot.
The cooking time does not include time needed for the pot to come to its pressure and release it. Add another 15-20 minutes.
Add salt, sugar and vinegar to your taste. I don’t recommend omitting the vinegar as it gives the cabbage its unique flavor.
Vegetable oil can be used instead of sunflower oil.
