Instant Pot Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage
Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free
[makes 8 servings]

Requires an Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker or similar appliance.

1 large head red cabbage

1 apple, thin sliced (optional)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons water

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cut the red cabbage in quarters vertically. Slice off the center core from each quarter and thinly slice.

Place the cabbage and all other ingredients into the Instant Pot. Don't worry that it fills more of the pot than is recommended. The cabbage will shrink when cooked.

Make sure the top vent is closed. Hit the manual button and set for 3 minutes.


After the pot comes up to high pressure and cooks for 3 minutes, hit the off button and do a quick release of the pressure. 


Carefully remove the lid, tilting it so that the steam escapes in the back. Stir the cabbage, adjust the salt and pepper if needed and serve.
