I like to cut my cabbage in long strip like pieces. Kind of reminds me of vegetable noodles. They cook a lot faster being cut this way too.
Cabbage is full of vitamin K and C. And you get a good dose of fiber from it. To top it off it’s a very low calorie food.
Just melt your butter (or butter substitute) over medium heat on the stove and throw your cabbage on top. Then just add your Cajun seasoning and red wine vinegar and mix around. Keep the cabbage stirring for 10 minutes and you’re ready to serve.
Easy Cajun Fried Cabbage
- 1/2 head of cabbage about 16oz
- 2 TBSP butter
- 1.5 TBSP red wine vinegar
- 2 TSP Ton'y Cajun seasoning
- Start by taking a head of cabbage and pulling off any outside leaves
- Take a sharp knife and cut the cabbage in half putting one half of the cabbage aside
- You will see the core of the cabbage and just cut along the sides and top of it and pull it out and discard and then cut the cabbage into strips
- Take a big pan and add butter to it over medium high heat and once the butter is melted add the chopped up cabbage
- Next add the red wine vinegar and then the Toni's cajun seasoning and cook for 15 minutes while continuously stirring so the cabbage will cook evenly
- You don't have to use just green cabbage. Red cabbage works and tastes just as great.
- If you want to use the whole cabbage double the butter, add an extra Teaspoon of Toni's Cajun Seasoning, and an extra tablespoon of red wine vinegar.
- If you want to add bacon and onions chop up both in small pieces and add them to the pan first. Cook until the bacon is cooked and omit the butter because the bacon grease will be a substitute.
- Only cooking the bacon for 15 minutes gives it a tender, but still a slightly crunch taste. You can cook longer for a lot more tender texture, but don't cook too long or it becomes mushy.
- If you want to cut some of the time out and make this super easy you can buy pre-cut cabbage in the produce department.
- If you want to make this recipe a little healthier omit the butter. Instead spray the cabbage with cooking spray and you will save on the calories.
