Ingredients

  • 1 small head green cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoon ghee or a blend of butter and olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut the cabbage in half, remove the core and chop into thin slices. Then chop the onions into slices.
  • Melt the ghee in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute the onions for a minute or until just starting to soften. Then add in the minced garlic and stir again.
  • Add the cabbage and saute for about 12-15 minutes. During this time, stir the cabbage occasionally until the cabbage becomes soft and caramelized.
  • Before serving, season with salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Notes

  • Because the cabbage may take up most of your pan, it's easiest to stir the cabbage with tongs. You could also saute the cabbage in batches if your pan isn't big enough. But cabbage, similar to spinach, will wilt down once it cooks.
