Stewed Red Cabbage

I had a head of red cabbage, and some sausage in the house. Needless to say, my interest with the cabbage was lying in stewing, since I wasn't about to ferment it (especially when I've already got kraut in the house). I had 4 or 5 people over that day, so it seemed like the most efficient way to use up ALL the cabbage, instead of just a bit of it at a time (like I normally do with the grilled cheese sandwiches). So here it is. I really enjoyed this dish, particularly given just how little work it took for me to make it, and will definitely make it again. Hope you enjoy!

3 tablespoons butter
1 large head cabbage, chopped
1 tablespoon onion juice (I was out of onions that day)
1 cup chopped celery
2 teaspoons nigella seed (black caraway)
1 teaspoon dill seeds
1 beer
4 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt to taste

Melt butter in a large frying pan over low heat. Add in all the other ingredients and let it simmer for 30 minutes to an hour. Serves 5.
