Whats a good way to make it? I have never made it before.
I love making cabbage and noodles. Or you make cole slaw with it. Or you can make stuffed cabbage rolls.
If you have never made cabbage before, this is a simple, fast, and easy way to give it a try.
Remove the scroungy outer leaves. Use a sharp knife and cut around the core. Remove the core. Toss a tsp of seasoning into the core hole. (seasoning could simply be salt, salt & pepper, or Italian blend, etc). Next - fill the core with butter or margarine or evoo. Set the cabbage core side up in a pot and add 1 cup of water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 15-20 min. Lower the heat and continue cooking for 30 min. The butter & seasonings should be melted and absorbed into the cabbage leaves. Place onto a platter, cut into quarters, and serve with your meal.
You can just as easily cook this in the microwave using a bowl and cover. Use 1/4 cup water. Cook on full power for 10 min and then on 50% power for 15 min.
I've never cooked cabbage before...except to use it in pancit.
I personally LOVE stuffed cabbage. you steam it until the leaves are pliable and then fill it with a meat mixture, layer it in a deep pot, add a can of tomaotes and some broth and cook it for about an hour or so and done!
my mom always make saurkraut with her cabbage.
2 tablespoons bacon fat or unsalted butter
1/2 medium head green cabbage, cored and chopped (about 4 cups)
½ cup chicken stock or broth
1 sprig thyme or sprinkle of dried thyme(optional)
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a large sauté pan heat bacon fat over medium-high heat. Add the cabbage and sauté until it begins to wilt, about 5 minutes. Then add the chicken broth, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until cabbage is tender, 15-20 minutes . Serves 4 to 6.
This original recipe is from Mickey Gilley's Texas Cookbook. My family loves it.
