Steamed Cabbage

I had what amounts to a bumper crop of cabbage this winter, considering there are only two of us. The best way for me to use up the cabbage is to cook a split-use dinner. Of course, not everyone wants stuffed cabbage rolls and steamed cabbage for dinner (although it’s very healthy!). Luckily, cabbage stores well in the right environment, so I can make cabbage rolls on Monday and steamed cabbage  on Saturday if I put the leftover cabbage back in the cooler in the garage.

Steamed cabbage is one of my favorites.  Prep is simple and it can be ready in just a few minutes when steamed in a stove-top steamer like the Gotham Steel® steamer. A little butter, some salt and pepper, and you’ve got a great companion to ham, pork chops, and even chicken.
