- 1 medium head cabbage
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 3 to 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
- Black pepper, to taste
Gather the ingredients.
Rinse the cabbage and cut it into 6 wedges.
Add about 1/2 inch of lightly salted water to a large skillet or Dutch oven, cover, and bring to a boil.
Add cabbage wedges and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes.
Turn cabbage carefully, and simmer an additional 8 minutes or until tender.
Pour off the water and return the pan to low heat until the moisture has evaporated. Add the melted butter and mix to coat the boiled cabbage thoroughly.
Sprinkle the cabbage with salt and pepper, seasoning to taste.
- Use chicken broth or vegetable broth in place of the water.
- Replace the salt with about 1/2 teaspoon of Creole or Cajun seasoning or a seasoned salt blend. If the seasoning is salt free, add salt to taste.
- Drizzle the cabbage with a homemade hot pepper sauce. Fill a sterile jar with cleaned, chopped hot or mild peppers. If the peppers are small, cut a slit in them or pierce them. In a saucepan over high heat, bring some vinegar to a boil. Pour the hot vinegar over the peppers. Cover and refrigerate for a week or two before using.
