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!! Read More

I make this all time...minus the butter, you don't need it. I always cook my cabbage in chicken broth. I also use the leftover broth as a base in vegetable and chicken soups (Freeze in ice cube trays for future use with cooking veggies too). Not to mention that the broth tastes wonderful on its own (especially when you are sickk)! Read More

Very simple, satisfying down home recipe. Modifications: I used probably about a tablespoon of butter, and sauteed a whole chopped onion in that before adding the chicken broth. Cabbage was done way before the recipe said -- took only 20 minutes. If had cooked for 45 minutes, I think it may have become a soggy, mushy mess. Read More

This is very good. I shredded the cabbage and added grated carrots as well for added color. Salt and pepper is all that is needed! I do however fry cabbage the exact same way minus the broth. I just poor olive oil in and fry it with grated carrots and sometimes a bit of onion. I let it brown slightly and cover so as it steams as well. Just like frying potatoes and onions. I grew up with it being fried in butter but changed to olive oil to be a bit healthier. Read More

I diced onion and lightly sauteed in butter before adding the chicken broth. This is very, very good. For a nice change, try adding crumbled bacon. Read More

This was good. Next time I will use less broth and get it a little browned. I served this as a side dish with the "Scalloped Potatoes 'n' Franks" on this site. I did use smoked brat's instead of hot dogs. Great comfort food combo. Read More
