It's surprising really, but simple buttered steamed cabbage is a delicacy. Steaming transforms the bitter vegetable into a delectable dish, and it's so inexpensive too!
Servings 6 servings
- 1 medium cabbage (2 lb. trimmed)
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
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.
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.
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.
