How To Make Creamed Cabbage

Ingredients needed

  • Cabbage
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Broth
  • All-purpose flour

Important tips before starting this recipe

  • Unlike fried cabbage this recipe uses dairy. You’ll need to watch the heat and keep it low. Some recipes use heavy cream but I am not a personal fan. Due to the amount of water in cabbage I believe making a cream sauce with flour to help absorb some of that water is best.
  • A major key to this recipe is controlling the heat. You want things to be hot enough to cook but not hot enough to burn. This is a recipe for someone who has some experience in the kitchen.

Making the creamed cabbage recipe

  1. First, prep all the veggies. Slice the cabbage, dice the onion and mince the garlic. Have everything within arms reach when you start the recipe. You’ll need a pan with a lid.
  2. In the pan, add a little oil and sauté the onion and garlic. Once the onion and garlic are soft and fragrant add in the butter. The pan should not be super hot, if the butter melts immediately and starts to brown the pan is too hot and you need to let it cool before going to the next step.
  3. Add in the flour and mix in with the butter and cooked onions and garlic. Then, add in the milk and chicken broth. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Once the milk starts to steam lower the heat to medium low.
  4. Now, right on top add the sliced cabbage and cover. Cook for 15 minutes or until the cabbage is tender and stir every 5 minutes. If you notice a bunch of browning at the bottom of the pan while mixing after 5 minutes lower the heat a little more.
  5. Salt to taste before serving.
