I actually cooked Smothered Cabbage yesterday afternoon for dinner. I had bought a pretty large head of cabbage so I’m thinking we’ll be eating this meal more than once for leftovers this week. I’m certainly not complaining since my future Mother-in-law’s recipe was unbelievably delicious. Mrs. Tessie had actually cooked it for us two weekends ago when we spent the weekend in Morgan City. Since I couldn’t get enough of this simple, yet tasty dish I kindly asked her for the recipe. I don’t know what my taste buds were thinking all of those years when I hated cabbage, but I’m so happy that I’ve grown to love this incredible vegetable.
1 large head of cabbage, cut or torn into small-medium pieces
Enough cooking oil to completely coat the bottom of a large pot (I used corn oil)
Two large Vidalia onions, chopped
Two cups of seasoned meat, diced
Pour cooking oil into a large pot and bring to medium heat. Add your onions, and cook until browned (about 10-15 minutes). Add the seasoned meat, and cook until lightly browned (about 5-10 minutes). After washing, draining and tearing your cabbage, slowly add to the pot. You will also want to bring the heat up to medium-high. If anything starts to stick add water. Continue to cook until tender (about 25-30 minutes depending on desired consistency). Enjoy!
It’s really important to stay close to the pot at all times since you will be stirring the ingredients through each step. If you do not stir constantly it could cause your ingredients to burn.
Although I had the Monday blues today, I was very happy once I returned home from the gym since Brett took it upon himself to clean the house completely. He’s also cooking dinner for me. I must say, I’m one lucky gal. Enjoy your evening guys!
