QNS ... can I make a recipe request?? Last night my husband asked me why I never make cabbage as a side dish. Honestly, the only time my teacher (Mom <g>) made cabbage was either corned beef and cabbage, or cabbage rolls. I hate corned beef so that's simply not happening, and when I mentioned cabbage rolls my husband said "no ... cabbage, not cabbage surrounding something else". As a kid his mother boiled cabbage and put it on a plate and called it done. B.O.R.I.N.G!!
Soooooo .... any good 'side dish' cabbage recipe's??
My Dh loves my Grandmother's simple recipe for cooked cabbage..., cut about half of head of cabbage into slices, (you can chop it up if you wish) add a teaspoon of mustard to prevent 'gas' and cover with water and put it on top of the stove to cook for about 20 minutes. (I put the electric stove burner at 12 o'clock) Test with a fork to see if its tender, continue on until it is tender to the touch of a fork...then add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of white sugar, and pour about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of milk over the cabbage and sugar and (I reduce the heat a bit so the milk will not burn, at 2 or 3 o'clock on my electric stove) bring it up to warm to hot temperature...not too soupy... and serve. Liquids are down to a low level, you can add a dash of salt and a tablespoon of butter for more flavor. It will reheat lovely... if you have leftovers.
Good cabbage side dish, shred up one head cabbage, in large saute pan melt 3tbsp.butter 1tbsp. olive oil, add cabbage and one shredded onion, and cook until cabbage has a little brown to it, then add 1/4 cup broth(I usually use the broth that goes with the meat we are having with meal) add sambul (Korean hot sauce)to taste, and some red pepper flakes, simmer until cabbage is done. Like to serve this over cous cous.
Thanks for posting another recipe, QNS, it looks like another one that I will try. :)
I love to try new ideas but with just two of us, it usually lasts tooooo long. And we really do not need extra calories. No family (here that visits us and that is a blessing I don't question)...kids live too far away. Love to cook, but no one but us, so everything gets scaled back or not attempted. So enjoy. And thanks for sharing, kwiltcrazy, your recipe for cabbage side dish. I can almost taste it.
your welcome. My husband and I love cabbage, we eat it at least three times a week.
