Sauteed Cabbage



The only time I ever eat cabbage is if it's in a slaw of some kind. Otherwise, you wouldn't really see me eat it at all. No wait...there is a Filipino stew that uses the stuff. So I take that back. I would eat it outside of the usually slaw. This was a quick little weekend lunch. From all the holiday eating, I'm taking my fill of some much needed veggies and nutrients and still adding some type of protein into the dish. I was planning on using the cabbage for something else, but I was hungry and I didn't wan to go out and buy something. The sauce of this dish is made from vegetable stock slightly thickened by a little cornstarch. In a way, creating a thick soup. It was a lazy Saturday especially with the nice weather we've had here in LA. Somehow it felt like mother nature skipped winter and went into spring.


 

sauteed cabbage

1 head cabbage - chopped
1 garlic clove
1/3 medium onion
1 12oz can vegetable stock
1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbsp water
2 c beef, pork, or chicken - sliced - optional
pepper to taste

Heat a little extra virgin olive oil in a pan, saute the garlic clove and onion on medium heat. Add the optional meat and cook them until they are just seared. Roughly 2-3 minutes depending on thickness. Addd the cabbage and saute until slightly cooked. Add the vegetable stock and cornstarch. Bring the mixture to a slight boil stirring occasionally until the stock become thick. Lower the hear and bring to a slight simmer until ready to serve.

Serve warm.

Funny, sauteed cabbage is what I had for dinner this evening - it's good stuff. And I'm also wishing that Mother Nature would skip on into spring, I'm done with the cold.

I love cabbage! Growing up we always had a garden and we grew our own cabbage. Needless to say in the summer I ate obscene amounts of the stuff...haha.

Cabbage is a vegetable which is composed of water but contain potassium, magnesium and vitamins that help our body. Many people like to prepare salad or another kind of recipe. You mus to approach all the propeties this vegetable.
