  • 1/2 head cabbage (about 3 gently packed cups) finely shredded
  • 1 Tbsp butter or olive oil
  • sea salt to taste


  • Begin by heating the fat in a skillet over medium heat (cast iron works great for this!).
  • Add in the cabbage, along with a good sprinkle of sea salt.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage has softened and wilted down.
  • Turn the heat down a notch and continue to cook the cabbage for another 5-10 minutes. Watch it closely at this time, as you don't want it to burn!
  • Once it has browned and caramelized to your liking, season it to taste and serve!
