I do love cabbage. The way I eat it the most is fried, which unless you're a southerner, probably isn't anything like what you're thinking right now. (No we don't deep fry our cabbage... although I'm sure that somebody has tried it.)
It's really almost a cross between a braise and a pan fry, and while some people do like to let all of the liquid cook out and continue cooking it until it caramelizes, I'm not one of them. I prefer it braised.
It's funny, because I often buy a head of cabbage with the intention of developing another new recipe for the blog, but half the time, I end up making fried cabbage because I love it so much. The Cajun doesn't eat cabbage at all, except for maybe a bite if I fix that as the green for our New Year's Day meal, so I don't make it as often as I'd like to. Along the way though, I have managed to put up a few recipes so that's what this collection is about.
Usually when I share recipes on social media, I also give a link to a compilation page where readers can get additional recipes for that same type of recipe, and if I don't yet have one up, I direct them to my Pinterest page. Now I've finally gotten a collection up right here on the blog!
Classic American-style stuffed cabbage leaves.
A sausage and peppers dish, using spicy Cajun sausage, pan seared cabbage wedges, sweet onion and diced tomatoes with green chilies, served over rice.
Kielbasa sausage, braised with cabbage, onions and potatoes in chicken broth - absolutely one of my top favorites.
A cabbage and rice dish, commonly called dressing here in the Deep South, made with the trinity sauteed in bacon drippings, stewed down with cabbage, browned ground beef or sausage, cooked rice, and cream soup, baked, and finished with a buttered bread crumb topping. Pictured here with my collard greens and squash salad.
Wedges of cabbage, seasoned, sprinkled with bacon, and wrapped tightly in foil packets, intensifying all of the flavor - great for the oven, campfire or grill.
A filling and satisfying cabbage soup made with a beef stock and tomato with V8 base, ground beef, turkey or sausage, and served over rice, with flavor that is reminiscent of an unstuffed cabbage roll.
Chopped cabbage, smothered down with the trinity of vegetables, ground sausage and tomatoes.
Stir Fried Cabbage Bowl
A simple stir fry of ground pork, turkey or beef, cabbage and rice. It's quick, easy and delicious!
Diet Cabbage Soup with Turkey from Deep South Dish blog, often referred to as zero point or free soup, because it is low calorie and primarily tomato and vegetable centered - oh and delicious too.
Southern fried cabbage is a very simple cabbage dish prepared often as here, with a bit of butter, bacon & onion. I like to add cider vinegar and dried pepper flakes for a little extra flavor punch.
My favorite way to do corned beef and cabbage is a shortcut, using canned corned beef and my basic fried cabbage recipe. I love this stuff!
Cajun Cabbage au Gratin, also known in this area as Choux Glorieux, or Glorious Cabbage, is a casserole of cooked, chopped cabbage, made with The Trinity, milk moistened bread, cheese and finished with a bread crumb and cheese topping.
Creamed cabbage, seasoned with bacon and onion and baked in a white sauce is a delicious and favorite southern dish.
