I have only ever tried raw, uncooked cabbage in dishes like coleslaw, fumi salad, and the like. Well, I have been missing out! The farm had some beautiful cabbage this week and I just had to pick some up. The weather had been cooling down and I really didn't want a cold salad, so I decided to try something new. WOW! This is not only one of the easiest side dishes ever, it is so delicious! I can't believe how much flavor is packed in this simple recipe! If you have never tried cooked cabbage, you owe it to yourself to try this recipe. It's perfect for these cold weather evenings!
Ingredients (serves 2 as a side)
1/2 large head of cabbage
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
- Remove core of cabbage and discard. Place cut side down and thinly slice as you would for coleslaw.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
- Saute 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender and just starting to brown. Serve warm.
