Caramelized Cabbage!

Caramelized Cabbage
I came across this recipe about 3 years ago on a cooking site called GroupRecipes. I tucked it away in a folder full of recipes that I wanted to try! Then the other day I found the folder and decided to finally try the recipe! I'm so glad I did because this was so very good!
It's basically just cabbage and onions with some seasoning, sauteed until caramelized! I couldn't stop eating this! There almost wasn't enough left for my family! For some reason, the recipe was removed from that site! I'm so glad I printed it out before it was removed! The recipe was posted by a member named Barbie Mensher
Thank you Barbie. I'll be making this often!
 I'm posting the recipe the way I made it...

Caramelized Cabbage
Caramelized Cabbage
 1 large green cabbage, cored and sliced thin
1 large onion, sliced thin
3 Tbls. olive oil
1 Tbls. butter
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, pick the large amount if you like it hot
 In a large skillet, heat oil and butter on med/high.
Add the cayenne, cabbage and onions and saute until golden while constantly stirring. This may take about 25-35 minutes. Keep scraping the bottom of the pan. And don't worry if the pan is getting brown, just keep scraping and tossing the mixture around. Add the salt after about 15 minutes of sauteeing. Keep browning until the mixture is very nicely browned and tastes sweet.
When done cooking you will only have about 2 cups of caramelized cabbage
 because it cooks down alot. This serves about 4 people as a side dish.
This is perfect served with any meat or fish.
 Serve warm.

    1. Thanks! I'm so glad you like it! I served this over plain was sooo good!

  2. It was unreal good. Will make again and again. My husband loved it also, Made it with the hamburger cabbage casserole, and he loved both of them. This coming from a man who would not touch cabbage in the 38 years we have been married! Thank you very much for all the great food.

    3. I'm so glad you made this and liked it Gudani. Tikka that chicken wings in a tikka masala sauce? If so, I know I'd love them =D Thank you so much for coming back to let me know you tried the recipe! =D

  4. Hey Lillian, so I cooked this for 30 people this time to add to my curry and rice dish, people liked the cabbage than the rest!

    1. Hi, for 30 people! You must have tripled the recipe! I'm so glad everyone loved made my day =D Thank you so much =D

  5. Hi Mark...I'm not sure a pressure cooker would work for this recipe because you need to keep stirring while the cabbage and onions are browning and caramelizing. The ingredients need to cook down and the fluids need to evaporate. I hope you will try it as written and let me know how you liked it. Thanks for checking it out =D
