Adapted from Ina Garten's "Parties" cookbook, this sounds banal, but is a lovely vegetable side. Very simple and very flavorful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the core and cut the cabbage in very thin slices, as if you were making coleslaw.
  2. I use a shredding attachment of my food process or do this.
  3. Melt the butter in a large saute pan or heavy-bottomed pot over med-high heat.
  4. Add the cabbage, salt and pepper and saute for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender and begins to brown.
  5. Finish with another sprinkling of fleur de sel to bring out the sweetness.
  6. Serve hot.

This is really great, especially when you consider how quick and simple it is. I've made it once as written and once with a combo of olive oil and a little bacon grease. Really delicious. As others have said, you could also throw in some onions or maybe a little garlic - haven't tried that yet but I bet it would give it an even bigger flavor boost.

Super easy, super tasty. I threw some sliced onions into the pan about a minute before adding the cabbage. I think they added a nice flavor. I'll definitely make this again.

Awesome! Yet so darned simple. What a great variation to preparing cabbage. I added julienne carrots for extra flavor and color and cooked the veggies till they were crisp tender. Simply marvelous...
