This is actually my favorite part of St. Patty’s Day dinner. When this vegetable is caramelized, it becomes sweet and so flavorful. You must try this! It takes a little time to cook as it takes about 40 minutes, but it will be well worth it. You also must stir often as the sugars in the cabbage can burn. It can be made ahead if you like.
If you have any leftovers, try tossing the caramelized cabbage with hot linguine and some fresh grated parmesan cheese for a fantastic vegetarian meal!
Slice the cabbage into quarters and remove the core. Thinly slice the entire head. In a heavy large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the cabbage. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Cook for 40-50 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the cabbage is caramelized.
Have a great day!
