Quick, Butter-Braised Cabbage


For March 17th, I wanted something Irishy.  Braised cabbage.  Because I love cabbage.  But the recipe I looked up was brazenly asking for 2+ hours of my time.  It was already after 5:00.  So, here it is, a quick braised cabbage for all you Irish Procrastinators.  It was very satisfying.

QUICK, BUTTER-BRAISED CABBAGE

1 Head green cabbage, chopped into pieces
1 onions, chopped into little moons
3 generous pats of real butter (maybe 4-5 Tbls)
Salt and FGP
1-2 tsp red pepper flakes

Melt butter over medium heat in skillet.  Once melted, add cabbage and onions.  Salt and FGP to taste, add pepper flakes.  Cook for no longer than 3 minutes or until it looks like this:





Eat with potatoes and corned beef or solo.  Eat more for lunch the next day.  Serves 4.
