Braised Red Cabbage with Bacon, Pears and Pecan
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add bacon and fry until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon and reserve on a paper towel.
Add onion and sauté 3 to 5 min., then add garlic and cabbage. Cook 3 to 5 min., then add vinegar, pear and caraway seeds. Transfer to a 9 x 13-in. (3 L) baking dish and bake for 30 min. or until cabbage is just soft.
Remove from oven and stir in salt and pepper. Top with cooked bacon and pecans, and serve.
