Beer-Braised Cabbage & Celery Root
This flavorful recipe from Emeril Lagasse gets an extra kick from a sauté in dark beer.
½ pound bacon*, chopped
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2½ cups chopped cabbage
1½ cups chicken stock
Heaping ½ cup celery root, peeled and thinly-sliced
1¼ cups dark beer, such as Stout
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. In a large, heavy sauté pan, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until golden and the fat is rendered. Add the onions and sauté, stirring, for 3 minutes, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
2. Add the cabbage, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, until cabbage begins to soften. Add the chicken stock and beer, and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 12 minutes, or until liquid has mostly been absorbed. Lastly, add the celery root and cook, stirring, until it is tender. Remove from heat and serve.
*As a substitute for the bacon, sauté the onions and other vegetables in 2 tablespoons butter.
