I’ll be the first to admit that this is not the most beautiful recipe I’ve ever posted. And it’s certainly far from being complicated. So, you’re wondering, why are you posting this Braised Cabbage? For one reason only – because it’s delicious!

Cabbage is one of those lowly vegetables that people tend to overlook in the produce section. Or they use it to make coleslaw or other summer salads. But I’ve always thought of cabbage as a winter vegetable. It’s always there. Always reliable long after the delicate lettuces and summer greens are long gone.

And, did you know that it’s pretty darned healthy, too? Yep. Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C and contains significant amounts of an amino acid that has anti-inflammatory properties. Along with broccoli, it is also a source of a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and is believed to block the growth of cancer cells. So there.

I’ve always enjoyed cabbage pretty much any way you can cook it. BeeBop on the other hand, can just barely tolerate it being in the house. Something about the odor of cabbage cooking being comparable to the residue of the local sewage treatment plant. Whatever. Just give me a bowl of this, some pork roast and a big piece of cornbread and I’m happy.
