I grew up on smothered cabbage, but I think this one can beat them all...tender-crisp and fast. See note for caraway.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saute or frying pan on medium-high heat, melt butter. Add chopped garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Do not burn garlic. Add shredded cabbage to garlic and butter, tossing to coat.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook cabbage, tossing occassionally until it just begins to turn golden, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Note: Caraway is a great addition. Add 1/2 teaspoon with the garlic and stir until fragrant.

Loved this simple cabbage recipe. So easy and so tasty with the caraway seeds!<br/>My feeling was that it needed just a touch of lemon juice so I added some and it was the best.<br/>I also substituted some butter with some olive oil for a little less fat. Still fantastic!

Love cabbage, and this was a really quick and easy way to prepare it! I didn't use the caraway.....just not a fan, and enjoyed the cabbage exactly as posted. Thanks for sharing!
