Cabbage has always been one of our favorite vegetables. It’s low in calories and provides real satiety. It’s filled with fiber and anti-oxidants and has been associated with cancer prevention. The best thing about cabbage though, is its versatility.
Cabbage has a naturally subtle sweetness but it pairs beautifully with spices. These are some of our favorite recipes.
- 1 cabbage – it needs to be sliced but there are 2 ways to skin the cat.
- If you boil it quartered for about 10 min, first, you can use less oil and cook it faster
- Or you can slice it and just sauté directly
- 1-2 onions chopped
- 2 Tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp caraway seeds
- 3 Tbsp canola oil
- Sauté the onions in heated oil until translucent
- Add sliced cabbage
- Stir to combine
- Cover and heat on a low flame. Stirring every 5 min or so. Until cabbage is soft about 20 min
- Add vinegar and sugar
- Stir thoroughly
- Add caraway seeds and stir again
- Cook for 5-7 more min and serve.
Perfect with pork
Ingredients & Preparation
- 2-4 c shredded Napa cabbage
- 1 Tbsp dark sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar (if you don’t like that vinegar tang use mirin instead)
- 1 Tbsp grated ginger
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 2 Tbsp cilantro finely chopped
- 4 oz poached chicken breast sliced (simmer the raw breast in water for about 15 min until it’s cooked through)
- 1/4 c chopped peanuts (optional). (Peanuts can be tricky to chop. We wrap them in 2-3 paper towels and crush them with a wooden spoon or a pan, whatever is handy. Plus it’s fun)
Toss everything in a bowl and serve!
- 1 large jar spicy kimchi
- It’s in the refrigerated vegetable section at the supermarket
- 1 lb stewing beef in cubes
- 1 box Beef stock. It comes in cans too but the kind in the box tastes better
- Chopped cilantro to garnish (Optional)
- In a large sauce pan
- Add kimchi and beef
- Cover with beef stock
- Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer for 1 hr uncovered, stirring occasionally
- Serve with cilantro sprinkled on top or as is
It’s hearty and spicy. You’ll love it.
