TNT: Beer Braised Cabbage
Don't you love when someone says "want me to do the cabbage for dinner"?? These were fantastic! I didn't watch him do it all, but asked questions at the table in between bites later to make sure I could replicate it on my own. Like maybe for breakfast ... haha.
Heat your skillet over med heat until nice and warm then add couple glugs of chili oil, or a canola-type oil with a generous amount of red pepper flakes.
Once the oil is hot, add:
zest of one small orange
a T of caraway seeds
a diced onion
and cook until the onions are translucent
Cut a small head of cabbage into thin-ish strips and add to the onions.
Pour a scant half-bottle of beer (he used the apricot ale we had with dinner) over the cabbage. Let it come to a simmer and cook until the cabbage is soft and the beer is almost fully evaporated.
Serve with a small dallop of sour cream.
