Cabbage surprise recipe - Recipes

I was chatting with a friend of mine about cooking ….surprise…..surprise… she was telling me about an interesting dish her family and friends really enjoyed.

She kindly shared her recipe, so I finally had a chance to try it out, and share it with you.

The preparation process might look involved, but it really isn’t bad.

The finished product looks impressive, especially before the stuffed cabbage head is cut up into serving sections.

For your convenience and better understanding of some of the preparation steps in this recipe, I am posting few pictures.

Remove from heat, and submerge the cabbage in ice water for 15 minutes.

Gently unfold the leaves one by one, and spread them out to the side of the core.

Add oil to sauce pan, and saute the onions, carrots, and garlic.

In a large bowl, mix the meatloaf mix with the sauteed onions, salt and pepper, paprika, Italian Seasoning, chopped parsley, egg, water, and catchup.

Make a large ball (size of a tennis ball) of the prepared filling, and place it in the middle of the spread out cabbage leaves

Spread a generous amount of filling onto the second layer of leaves.

Repeat this process until all the leaves are used up.

Bring up all 4 corners of the cheesecloth, fit snugly around the stuffed cabbage head, and tie it all together at the top of the head.

Place the ball of cabbage in a medium pot, and it is ready to cook.

Bring to boil, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.

How To Make Fried Cabbage

Never made stir fried cabbage before? It is simple! You just need cabbage, a flavor booster (I’m using mushrooms) butter, seasonings and a few minutes in a frying pan!

Fry the cabbage up in a bit of fat and season it up! If you have problems with the cabbage starting to stick you can add a little water to keep things cooking.

The Secret to a Great Fried Cabbage Recipe is FLAVOR

A great fried cabbage recipe needs great flavor. Even with the white pepper my one year old daughter will literally throw a tantrum if we don’t give her a big serving of this fried cabbage! It is one of her favorite dishes.

Cabbage can seem strongly flavored raw but cooked with a bit of butter it becomes rich and savory. Mushrooms bring a bit of umami to the dish but you could sub out some onions if you like!

You NEED a good cabbage recipe

Green cabbage is a sneaky vegetable. You don’t know you could love it until somebody makes it right! A little butter and a few minutes to caramelize and you have a powerhouse side dish!

Cabbage is usually very cost effective vegetable and you can store it in your fridge for 2-4 weeks! Heck – sometimes I get away with 5 weeks (though that is not a great plan). I love that I can buy a few cabbages when I go to the store and they are ready and waiting for me on busy nights!

Of course you can buy already shredded cabbage if you like.

How to Shred Cabbage

Shredding cabbage is easy peasy! Cut the vegetable into quarters and slice the core out.

Use a food processor with a slicing blade to have everything sliced in under a minute. I slice a head at a time and put part of it in a Ziploc bag for the next meal. It will easily last a week or more this way.

If you don’t have a fancy slicing option just take your chef’s knife and slice it thinly. This is one of those places where practicing great knife skills will save you time and effort!

Recipe Summary

  • 3 (1 pound) loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 5 pounds ground beef
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 large head cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Divide each loaf of frozen bread dough into 6 pieces, and roll into balls. Set aside.

Crumble the ground beef into a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off grease. Add the water, cabbage, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring as needed, until the cabbage is soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. I like to use more pepper than salt. Drain off any excess liquids, and set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough balls into 5 inch (approximate) squares. Place about 3/4 cup of the cabbage burger into the center, fold the dough over, and pinch to seal. Place on a baking sheet with the seam side down.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, and brush with melted butter. Serve hot.

I have no idea where this frizzled cabbage recipe originated. Hubby made it for the first time for me 12-14 years ago after I told him in no uncertain terms that I was not a cabbage fan, and I wouldn’t like this recipe. Boy, was I wrong. It is amazing to me how a food preparation method can make such a huge difference in a vegetable. I now look forward to buying or harvesting cabbage as this cabbage recipe is simply fantastic.

If you like cabbage, well you are in for a real treat. If you dislike cabbage, you are in for a big surprise! That is how good this simple cabbage recipe and preparation method is. Simply yummy.

● It does not matter if you use salted or unsalted butter. Purely your choice.
● You may add salt and pepper to taste (if you like).
● If you do not want to slice a whole head of cabbage (or two Napa cabbage heads) look for pre-shredded cabbage in your produce department 9which brings “prep time” down to a minute).

Frizzled Cabbage Ingredients:

● 1 head of Cabbage or 2 heads of Napa Cabbage
● 8 TBSP Butter (1 stick)

Frizzled Cabbage Mise en Place:

● Knife + Cuttingboard or Mandoline
● Heavy Sauce Pan (or Frying Pan)
● Spoon or Spatula

Frizzled Cabbage Directions:

● Core cabbage and slice thinly.

● Melt butter in heavy sauce pan.

● When butter is melted, add the sliced cabbage.

● Sauté cabbage for 30 – 45 minutes until caramelized and soft, stirring occasionally.
● Do not allow the cabbage to burn or stick to the bottom of the pan.
● When soft the cabbage will be buttery sweet and delicious.

Easy Sauteed Cabbage Recipe

This Easy Sauteed Cabbage recipe is a quick and healthy side dish for any night of the week, but especially for Saint Patrick’s Day! If you think you don’t like cabbage you need to try it this way!

Cabbage! Love it, hate it, or indifferent? I was not a big fan of cabbage until a few years ago when I decided to host a St. Patrick’s Day dinner. If you are a long time reader you know I love St. Paddy’s day! Some of my most popular recipes were created to celebrate the day, including this Irish Mule and this Guinness Beef Stew.

I wanted to make corned beef and cabbage, but to be honest, the traditional method of cooking leaves something to be desired. Boiled cabbage is not the best. I found this recipe from Simply Recipes and I’ve been making my cabbage this way ever since. I’ve made just a few small modifications over the years. If you think you don’t like cabbage, you need to try it cooked this way!
