Introduction: Not Your Moma's Cabbage

Cabbage, what a wonderful veggie! this is a fast, easy way to make it.


- 1 quater of a large cabbage. I used a half of a baby cabbage and it served 3. Cabbage gives great yield cooked this way.
- 3 garlic cloves choped small
- Salt
- Pepper
- Paprika
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar + tablespoon of water 
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Step 1:

Slice you cabbage as thin as you can get it. This is the hardest step in the whole dish.

Step 2:

In a saute pan heat up the oil and fry the garlic.
add the salt, pepper, paprika and stir for a second.

Add the thin sliced cabbage, stir for a minute to warm it up. Use high heat, you want the water +vinegar mix to sizzle.

Add the vinegar and water shut the heat off, cover the pan and let it sit for 2 minutes.

Step 3:

Serve and enjoy!!!

I eat it with rice, but you can use as a side for almost anything. I fact, it would make the perfect side for a corned beef meal

How do you make it? I like to learn new ways to prepare it.

My Grandmother would slice it super thin and then make a dressing of sautéed garlic and vinegar and put it on top. Basically raw cabbage with Garlic dressing. Yum!

our version was very basic, we simply sliced cabbage and fried it in olive oil and seasoned with black pepper, we may have added onion or garlic i can't remember

if you like cabbage salads, i may have to post "crunchy salad" which is a recipe of a friend noodle packet that is the best salad on earth!
