Simmered Cabbage

Simmered Cabbage created by Kumquat the Cats fr

Once upon a time, my husband told me that he didn't like cooked cabbage. "Ah ha," I thought, "a challenge!" So I made a dish based on my "Simmered Leeks" recipe that works so well, and -- let's just put it this way: he changed his mind. He loves it when I make simmered cabbage! A very simple and tasty way to use this much-maligned veggie.

  • Heat oil and butter in large heavy and wide saucepan or saute pan; add cabbage, salt, pepper, and stir over low heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add broth (I usually add a bit of sherry, too) and bring to boil, cover and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often, for about 15 minutes or until cabbage is tender.
  • Raise heat to medium, uncover and let juices reduce to about half (be careful not to let burn).
  • Taste and adjust seasoning, serve hot.

    Fantastic! Wonderful way to prepare cabbage for the fam. I added thin slivered onions and dried roasted garlic flakes- along with cutting the cabbage into extremely thin strips. Didn’t have sherry so substituted burgundy and - voila-perfection! Everyone took seconds, even the non-cabbage enthusiasts.

    I always think of my father when I make cabbage. Dad hated all cabbage that wasn't coleslaw. I think he would have liked this one. It was mild and not "cabbage-y smelling". It was easy to do and the touch of sherry was genius. I do believe that one "new" ingredient made a huge difference. We gobbled this down and I now have a standard cabbage recipe to fall back on. Will make again...and again and again.

    This is the best tasting cabbage I have ever eaten. It is my new go to recipe for St. Patrick's Day corned beef and cabbage. Thanks for you.

    Had leftover cabbage from St. Pat's. This is great and would be very adaptable! Thanks for posting!
