How to Cook Cabbage on the Stove

  • Author: Bobby


Basic Boiled Cabbage Recipe (6 Servings)


  • One cabbage head, medium
  • Water
  • Four tablespoons butter, melted
  • Black pepper, freshly ground
  • Salt


  1. Wash the cabbage and divide it into six wedges. Pour water into a Dutch oven to about ½ inch of the container, and mix with some salt, so it’s lightly salted. Let the salted water boil.
  2. Add the wedges with ½ teaspoon of salt. Cover the Dutch oven and simmer for 9 to 10 minutes. Carefully turn cabbage wedges and simmer for another 8 minutes. The cabbage wedges should be ready when a small paring knife easily slides through the thickest part of the core area.
  3. Drain out the water and return the Dutch oven to the stove. Leave until the remaining water has evaporated. Pour in the melted butter, so it coats the cabbage wedges. Mix thoroughly but carefully till the coating is even.

Season the wedges with pepper and salt to taste, and serve. To help you further, here’s another video recipe you can try.
