Buttered Cabbage

March 30, 2013

I consider cabbage “the long lost cousin” in the green family but I don’t think I am alone.  Whether I forget the recipes (other than the beloved coleslaw or cabbage soup) or do I just forget to put it on my grocery list? But this simply delicious dish is a delicacy.


Buttered Cabbage


  • 1 Med. Onion (chopped; more if you prefer)
  • 1 Head Cabbage (cut in bite size pieces)
  • 4-5 T. Irish Butter
  • Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper


  1. In a large pan melt the butter and saute the onions for a few moments; add the cabbage and large pinch of salt
  2. Saute for about 5 minutes while stirring occasionally
  3. Continue to stir for about 5 more minutes; add salt and pepper to taste
  4. Serve in a warmed bowl



(Serves 6-8)
