Simple Cooked Cabbage


  • 1/2 of cabbage, outer leaves removed and cored
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage and then cut in quarters. I only used 1/2 a cabbage for this but just double if you're cooking for many. Cut the core out of the cabbage at the base, then slice thinly.
  • Put the cabbage in a saucepan, add the butter, salt to taste and then add the 1/2 cup of water.
  • Bring to a simmer on the stove, stir, and let simmer until the water has mostly evaporated, at which point the cabbage should be tender.
  • If the rest of your dinner is ready, stir and simmer a few minutes just to evaporate the rest of the water.
  • If you're dinner's not quite ready, just set this aside and then bring back up to warm it through before serving.
