  • About

The flavour of cabbage cooked in this quick way is often a revelation to people when they taste it.

Ingredients

  • 450 g fresh Savoy cabbage
  • 30–55 g butter
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • a knob of butter

Method

Remove the tough outer leaves from the cabbage. Divide into four, cut out the stalks and then cut into fine shreds across the grain. Put 2 or 3 tablespoons of water into a wide saucepan with the butter and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, add the cabbage and toss constantly over a high heat; cover for a few minutes. Toss again and add some salt, freshly ground pepper and the knob of butter. Serve immediately.
