If I have a handful of readers for this one, I'll be surprised. Remember what I suggested here, don't knock it until you try it! Who knows, this could be a favorite with your children. You never know what their taste buds will find appealing.
I needed a recipe that would use up the last half of cabbage from our CSA. This recipe seemed to fit the bill. This paired really well with an Asian-inspired dish (post to come). If you're looking for a simple way to use up some extra cabbage, this recipe is a winner.
adapted from Never Enough Thyme
1/2 head of cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 of a medium onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 of a medium green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp bacon grease (or an extra tsp of olive oil)
1 cup chicken broth
dash of sesame oil, optional
salt & pepper to taste
Heat olive oil and bacon grease in large skillet. Add the onions and green peppers and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken broth, cabbage, and dash of sesame oil, if using, and bring a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the cabbage is wilted - about 5 minutes. Remove lid and continue to cook another 15-20 minutes until cabbage is tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
