This recipe actually came from my MIL; I had never had fried cabbage until I started dating my husband. In fact the only time I had even really eaten cabbage at all was on New Year’s or in the form of a cabbage roll a few times in my lifetime. Anyhow, I hadn’t been dating Baby Cakes that long when I was over for dinner at his Mom and Dad’s house for supper and had this version of cabbage. Oh.my.goodness good. We eat this often too, because I learned quickly that BCakes’ Mom knows the way to his heart. I take notes.
1 small cabbage, rinsed and chopped
½ stick butter
½ onion, quarter
1-2 tbs. seasoning blend, your choice
Over medium heat in a large skillet sauté the sliced onion in the butter until done and/or translucent.
Add the cabbage and seasoning to the skillet, stir and cook down. It will wilt pretty quickly and once it begins to you can cover it with a lid and continue cooking over low heat for 25-45 minutes or until some of the cabbage had taken on a golden color and it is completely soft.
Serve it warm and preferably with some pepper sauce and corn bread.
I can’t help but grab a bit every time I walk pass the skillet. I adore it although it doesn’t make the house smell that lovely but that’s where Scentsy comes in.
Mmmm Buttery Cabbage,
