  • 1 small head green cabbage about 2 - 2 1/2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Cut the cabbage in half through its core. Slice each half as thinly as possible into fine ribbons, slice around the core, and discard it.
  2. Heat a large saute pan or cast iron pan, a Dutch oven will work too, over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter, stir to melt. Once the butter is melted, add the cabbage, minced garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Saute for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender and it begins to brown.
  4. Remove from the heat when done cooking and stir in the apple cider vinegar. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper if needed.
  5. Squeeze the lemon wedge on top of the cabbage, taste, and if it needed more acidity add more lemon juice.
  6. Sprinkle with fresh chopped oregano and parsley and serve.
