Sautéed cabbage It is a simple garnish that has more flavor than you think. The sliced cabbage is tossed in butter, garlic and onion, then caramelized in a golden color. It is absolutely delicious and I guarantee you will come back for a few seconds.
If you haven't experimented much with cabbage, now is the time. In addition to being mashed in coleslaw or simmered in the oven, it tastes amazingly sauteed. Cabbage slices turn tender melted with slightly crisp caramelized edges.
And when you cook it with garlic and onion, it is a warm, fragrant and delicious garnish. Not to mention, perfect for any of the St. Patrick's Day festivities!
What type of cabbage to use
Cabbage comes in many forms, from kale to green and red. But for this recipe, you'll want to grab a head of green cabbage. This is commonly used in various recipes, from salads to salads to stir fries. And when it's cooked enough, its natural sweetness will come out.
Cabbage should feel heavy, with tight leaves. You'll also want to avoid any signs of discoloration.
Which to use: butter, oil or ghee
After trying this recipe in different ways, I must say that my favorite method is with ghee.

If you sauté for too long with butter, it can easily burn and olive oil doesn't taste as sweet. You can make a combination of butter and oil (the highest smoke point of the oil prevents the butter from burning). But at that point I say just use ghee. Ghee has a high smoke point, it doesn't burn and you will get that delicious butter flavor.
How to make sautéed cabbage
The best thing about this recipe is that it is quick and easy. This is how you do it:
- Prepare the cabbage and onion. Cut the cabbage in half, cut the core and cut it into thin slices. Then cut the onion into slices.
- Cook the onions and garlic. Add ghee to large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions for a minute or until they start to soften. Then add the garlic and stir again.
- Cook the cabbage. Add cabbage to skillet and sauté for about 12-15 minutes. Stir cabbage occasionally, until smooth and caramelized.
- Season. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
- To serve. Remove the pan from the heat and serve immediately.
