Fried Cabbage

Everyone *loves* my mom’s fried cabbage!  It’s a huge hit anywhere she brings it (including parties at my house). I think because she is always willing to bring it and her version is sooooo good, I have never tried to make it myself before.  That is, until tonight!

It’s such a simple recipe…only 3 ingredients.  It takes a little time and you can’t try to rush it, but it’s sooo worth it in the end.  Delicious!  And, leftovers are even better.  My mom uses an electric frying pan, so if you have one, give it a try.  I, however, do not own one so I used just a normal skillet on my stove.  It worked just fine!

Start with the onion…

  • Chop up 1 onion.

image

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add 2-3 tablespoons of butter.

image

  • Once the butter melts, add the onion.

image

  • Saute until softened (about 7 minutes).

image

  • While the onion cooks, chop up 1 head of green cabbage.

image

  • Add about 2 more tablespoons of butter to the softened onion.

image

  • Then, add the cabbage.

image

  • Stir to combine everything.

image

  • Cover and let cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

image

  • Add more butter if the skillet is getting too dry.

Make sure you give the cabbage ample time to get nice an caramelized.  And don’t forget to stir.  And no matter what: do not get impatient and increase the heat.  It will burn!
