How to make it
- In a large deep skillet, melt the butter gently. When ready just add the cabbage to the pan. Cover and simmer on low to medium heat.
- Put the carrots and the broccoli florets into a microwavable bowl,cover with water and heat until tender.
- When the carrots and broccoli are ready pour off the water into the sink, being careful not to scald yourself like I have.
- Add these to the cabbage.
- sprinkle with sea salt about 1/2 a teaspoon and sprinkle generously with the seasoned pepper.
- With a large spatula turn the cabbage in the pan well. Replace the lid and set your timer for 5 min. intervals for the nest 30- 45 min. At medium heat. You will have to turn this that frequently or the cabbage will burn instead of carmalizing.
- I put a stool by the stove and relax with a cup of coffee through this and read the paper.
- When the cabbage is becoming transparent a bit, It will start to get brown. This is what you want. When You have a really nice browning on it turn off the heat, put the pan aside to cool a minute. Then its done. You can package this in your vacuum sealer when cool and freeze it for about a month. It keeps a nice flavor that long and reheat well in the microwave.
