Simmered in water and enjoyed with just a touch of butter, fresh cabbage takes center stage in this recipe from Martha Stewart.
1 Savoy cabbage
1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Cut the cabbage in half, then remove thick ribs and core. Cut crosswise into 1-inch strips.
2. Place cabbage in a large skillet with 1 cup water (skillet will be very full). Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover skillet; simmer until cabbage is very tender, tossing occasionally, 12 to 15 minutes.
3. Pour out any water remaining in skillet. Add butter; season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.
