Slow Cooked Cabbage
This is a very simple dish to make. It's great if you like cooked cabbage (I do, hubby doesn't).
1 onion, diced
1 tsp paprika
4 cups finely shredded green cabbage (love my trusty food processor for this)
1 tsp salt
In a large pot, steam fry the onions in a little water until they are soft and golden, about 15 minutes. Add more water as necessary to prevent sticking. Add the paprika, cabbage and salt and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Cover tightly and cook on a very low heat for at least an hour, stirring occasionally until the cabbage is very soft. Add more water if the cabbage begins to stick to the pot.
I usually leave this on low heat for a couple of hours for a sweet flavour.
This can be a side dish. I make it my main meal with cooked pasta stirred in. I think this would be niced with boiled potatoes too.
