In large Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook bacon until fat begins to render, about 2 minutes.

Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crispy and onion is softened, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add cabbage, apple, cider, vinegar, mustard seeds, salt and pepper; cook over medium heat until cabbage is slightly wilted, 5 to 7 minutes.

Cover and reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, until apple and cabbage are tender and almost no liquid remains, 40 to 50 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat over medium heat, about 10 minutes.)
