steamed cabbage

It may not look like much, but this simple steamed cabbage, enhanced with butter and garlic, is a delicacy.

Makes 6 servings
New quantity:

Total time: 20 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

1 medium cabbage (2 pounds trimmed)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

1. Trim the cabbage, then shred. Place in a colander and rinse. Transfer the rinsed cabbage to a large, deep skillet, without drying it off – the water adhering to the cabbage will allow it to steam.

2. Turn the heat on medium-high and cover. When the cabbage starts to steam, lower heat to medium. Steam, covered, 5-7 minutes, or until just tender. Uncover and cook 2 more minutes to allow any remaining water to evaporate.

3. Add the butter, garlic, salt and black pepper, and red pepper flakes if using, stirring to combine. Cook 2-3 more minutes, stirring, until butter has melted. Serve warm.
