Red Cabbage and Apples
(goes great with Sauerbraten lol:>)
Bet it would be great with Pork Roast, etc

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 cups shredded red cabbage
1 onion, chopped
2 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
2 tablespoons water

1 1/2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
ground black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons white sugar
3 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

Heat oil in a medium size saucepan. Stir in cabbage and onion; fry until wilted. Stir in apple and water, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer about 25 minutes.

Pour vinegar and sugar into the mixture while tasting for desired sweet and sour taste. Cook another 5 to 6 minutes.

(I made this when I started my slow cooker for the sauerbraten, into fridge to be reheated when ready to eat)

Hubby is not a cabbage-loving-guy and he thought this was great!

3/4 cup old fashioned oats
2 large egg whites or 1 egg
1 cup chili sauce, divided

Preheat oven to 375 F.  Put onion, garlic, ground beef, oats, egg 1/2 cup chili sauce pepper and salt, if desired  into mixing bowl.  Mix well; pack into 9x5-inch loaf pan.  Spoon remaining 1/2 cup of chili sauce over top of meat loaf.  Bake 50-55 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 F.  Let stand in pan 5 minutes.  Pour off any juices from pan.  Cut into slices to serve.  Makes 6 servings.

This is a really good and moist meat loaf.  I use a non stick meat loaf pan with an insert that has holes in it to let the grease/fat drain out while cooking. I also spray the pan and insert with non stick spray.  I add 1 tsp of groung flax meal to the hamburg mixture and I leave out the salt, which would reduce the sodium a lot.  I've tried replacing the chili sauce with catsup and the chili sauce is much better.
