Melt butter in large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, apples, thyme, and bay leaf, season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 6 minutes. Add cabbage and 1/2 c. broth, season with salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cover. Cook, stirring often, until the cabbage is tender, 15-20 minutes.
