Instructions Checklist
  • Chop cabbage into 1- to 2-inch pieces.

    Advertisement
  • Cook bacon in an open 8-quart pressure cooker over medium heat until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Do not crisp the bacon unless you just like it that way. Add butter and stir until melted.

  • Place the chopped cabbage into the pot and pour in chicken broth. Add salt and black pepper to taste and toss the cabbage until coated.

  • Secure the lid to your pressure cooker, place the regulator on top (depending on the type of pressure cooker you have), and turn the heat up to high. When the regulator begins to rock or the cooker reaches full pressure, lower the heat to maintain a gentle rocking motion (15 pounds per square inch). Cook for 3 minutes.

  • Immediately remove the cooker from the heat and use the quick-release method recommended by your cooker's manufacturer to reduce the pressure. Transfer cabbage to a serving dish and serve hot.

Cook's Note:

For a complete meal, dice some cooked ham and place it in the pot before cooking.

EASY & oh so yummy! I did substitute smoked sausage for the bacon & browned 3 mins. each side with some butter, garlic & a few dashes of Worcester Sauce. Added my chopped cabbage & only 1 cup of stock. I also quartered a few red potatoes lightly seasoned with kosher salt & added them to my PC steamer basket. Served up with allrecipes' Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread! HUGE hit with my hubby! Thanks EyeSpy for this recipe! Read More

Loved it. I had already chopped and was sauteeing garlic before I looked up recipe ideas. But other than the addition of the garlic I followed this recipe and it was delicious. Read More

This was an excellent recipe. Super easy. I should have only used one cup of chicken broth though. Next time I will make it with sausage like others have done. I am a new pressure cooker user & I appreciate the detailed instructions. Read More

I left out the bacon and used only 1 cup of chicken broth. I also cooked this stovetop. The taste is great. Next time I will cook it in a pressure cooker. Read More

I love this recipe on the stove so of course I wanted to try in in the pressure cooker. I skipped the bacon because I didn't have any. I usually add garlic onions and crushed red pepper to mine though. I only used one cup of chicken broth and it came out without excess liquid which was perfect and just like when it's made on the stove. I don't ever add salt when I am cooking so when it goes to the table everyone can add their own level of saltiness. I'm happy to make it in the pressure cooker and get rid of the oil when it's made on the stove and then add butter when it's on my plate. Now I can just sprinkle with salt. Read More

This was fantastic! I added garlic and sausage to the recipe and cut back on the butter and added no salt. I would make this again and we are not cabbage eaters. The pressure cooker allows fast nutritious suppers and this had few ingredients! Read More

Don't you love no brainers!! I made this a one pot meal. I used garlic 2 bay leaves carrots onions potatoes leftover ham & cabbage and of course home made chicken broth. I also make my broth in PC using rotisserie chicken carcasses. Rotisserie ckns make a much more flavorful broth. This makes a great one pot meal in 6 minutes. I also make this with smoked polish.

By far my favorite cabbage recipe EVER! I generally brown a little spicy sausage in the open pressure cooker and then add the other ingredients... but I don't add butter since I use the drippings from the sausage. YUM!!! Read More

Super easy! I think it took even less time to make. I also added some summer sausage to it and it just added to the flavor. I am really liking the pressure cooker to make quick meals. Read More
