Fabulous Fried Cabbage Recipe
A favorite old Irish family recipe for fried cabbage and it's so easy.
I make this all the time. This recipe calls for way to much broth to get fried cabbage. This makes stewed cabbage. A big difference. "Fried" cabbage is exactly as the name suggests. The cabbage is fried in an oil of one sort or another. Usually bacon grease or butter. My personal favorite stewed cabbage is a combination of matchstick carrots, sliced onions, chopped cabbage and mushrooms. Saute the carrots and onion in butter, add cabbage, mushrooms and broth. Simmer until cabbage is slightly translucent. Season in the last few minutes of cooking.
Loved this! Very simple and delicious
I cooked this because I ran out of room in my slow cooker for the cabbage in my corned beef and cabbage. So I thought I would try this. This is not really a fried cabbage. More like a sauteed cabbage. I used the broth from the slow cooker. I think there is way too much broth. Maybe somewhere around a 1/2 cup would allow it enough to steam but not be so soupy as mine was. And 45 minutes is way too long. I lifted the lid at 10 minutes and it was already pretty soft, but still had too much fluid. So I bumped up the heat to quickly reduce the broth. Which I liked, because it allowed the cabbage to start to brown a little bit. This has good flavor and I do like it better than if it were in the crock pot. I am just thinking the liquid and timing is off.
This was good but it is not fried cabbage.
This is a quick version. Put some butter in a wok or large skillet. Slice up the cabbage and add to butter. Stir it around to coat with butter and salt the cabbage lightly. Stir from time to time moving the bottom to the top. Whe you see some nice brown edges and the cabbage become translucent its done. Takes about 10 min. Sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese. Even my 18 month old loves this veggie!!
My mother used to make this and sprinkle red wine vinegar on with lots of salt and pepper
'Totally agree with MSEATON ... First I added 2 tbs of butter AND olive oil, when the butter melted I added my shredded onion, carrots and cabbage at high heat until the onions and cabbage were a nice brown colour. YUMMY! It tastes ssoooo good with corned beef. :o)
