I was talking food and recipes with my foodie sister recently and she mentioned that her kids are weird, in that they love her butter braised cabbage.
I heard butter and I heard cabbage and my mind went, hmmmmm… Here is the result, soft, velvety cabbage in a rich buttery sauce.
This high-fat dish is ideal as a side with lean meat cuts such as pork tenderloin, beef sirloin, chicken breasts or white fish. If you practice intermittent fasting and only eat one or two high energy meals per day, feel free to serve it with fatty meat cuts such as pork belly, beef ribeye or fatty fish such as salmon.
I’m with her kids, I love it too! Enjoy!
