  • 1 slice thick applewood smoked bacon
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ head red cabbage thinly sliced
  • cup sliced shallot
  • ½ cup low-salt chicken broth
  • 2 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp, remove and once cool, crumble and reserve.
  • Add the oil to the same pan; when hot add the cabbage and shallots, saute for a minute, then add the broth, vinegar, sugar, and allspice; season with salt and pepper; cover and cook over medium heat until the liquid is reduced to a glaze and the cabbage is crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Remove to a warmed serving dish and sprinkle the bacon bits over the top.
