sauteed cabbage recipe


  • 1 medium head green cabbage cored & sliced into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Prep the cabbage and chop your onion. I just slice the cabbage thin (cut out the core) and chop the onion like usual.
  2. Add the butter and oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the cabbage to the pan and toss/stir it as best as you can (use 2 spoons or tongs to make it easier). Don’t worry, as it cooks the cabbage goes down and it becomes more manageable. Stir/toss it often and let it cook until it’s just about as soft as you want it (about 10-15 minutes).
  4. Add in the paprika and garlic. Cook it for a couple more minutes. If the cabbage starts to brown too quickly, turn the heat down. Some browning is good – it adds extra flavor.
  5. Season with salt & pepper as needed and serve immediately.
