Braised Cabbage

"I hesitate to post this, because it is just so simple.....but just in case no one has done this, here it is! If pressed for time you can use cole slaw mix, but it isn't as fresh as cutting your own, and with such a simple recipe freshness is best."

    I had this as a vegan, low-carb lunch (hard to combine those two things usually), replacing the butter with mustard oil which I tempered with mustard seed. Cooks in southern India use mustard oil in their cooking, as it adds a nice pungent bite (does NOT taste like yellow mustard afterwards). I also added some garlic to the vegetables, which I sauteed all at the same time. I served drizzled with sriracha sauce along with a piece of nan bread. Quick easy and good. Just as a note, this is not a braised dish, but a saute, as you need to use both dry heat and cooking liquid for braising. This is better than braised cabbage!

    Simple and comforting, but nothing really exciting. However left-overs can be used in anything at all.

    A nice quick vegetable side that is ready in short order. I did add in a touch of dill and thought it added a nice touch.

    I love cabbage and this did not disappoint. I followed the recipe as written other then we like our vegetables soft and not crispy so I cooked mine for about an hour. Since I cooked it longer, I did have to add another three tablespoons of butter.

    We really enjoyed this lovely simple dish breezer. My dh liked it so much he asked for it the next night also. No hardship there, enjoyed both times. Quick and easy to make, with lovely flavor and texture. A great way to get those veggies in you. Thanks for sharing a dish that will be made often.

    So very simple to make. Changed up a little. I use bought coleslaw mix and white onions instead of green onions. Made for Football Pool 2012 week 8.
