Triple "B" Braised Red Cabbage
A favourite recipe of ours from Emily Richards and the Best of Bridge cookbook series. We love serving this up during Oktoberfest along with some delicious pan seared pork schnitzel and pierogies or noodles.

You can use all milk instead of milk and cream, it will just not be as luscious. You can even substitute an alternate non-dairy beverage such as almond or soy milk for those that are dairy-free.
