Sweet and Sour Cabbage

The touch of tartness in this recipe is wonderful with the sauerbraten. This is one part of the meal that is even tastier if it can be made ahead.

2 tablespoons bacon drippings, or vegetable oil
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash pepper
4 cups shredded red cabbage
