Yield: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 medium cabbage (2 lb. trimmed)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Instructions
  1. Trim the cabbage, then shred. Place in a colander and rinse.
  2. Transfer the rinsed cabbage to a large, deep skillet, without drying it off - the water adhering to the cabbage will allow it to steam.
  3. Turn the heat on medium-high and cover. When the cabbage starts to steam, lower heat to medium.
  4. Steam, covered, 5-7 minutes, or until just tender. Uncover and cook 2 more minutes to allow any remaining water to evaporate.
  5. Add the butter, garlic, salt and black pepper, and red pepper flakes, stirring to combine. Cook 2-3 more minutes, stirring, until butter has melted. Serve warm.
