Seared Red Cabbage Wedges image

This recipe, given to me by cookbook author Clifford A. Wright, is incredibly easy to make. Don't be afraid to use high heat, and be sure to allow the cabbage to color in the pan before turning it. The seared flavor of the cabbage is so appealing it is almost addictive.

Time 15m

Yield Serves six to eight

Number Of Ingredients 4

1 small head of red cabbage, cut in 8 wedges, core intact so that the wedges stay together
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (more as needed)
freshly ground pepper


  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a heavy cast iron or nonstick frying pan. When it is very hot, place as many cabbage wedges as will fit in one layer in the pan. Cook for three to five minutes until golden brown on one side. Using tongs or a spatula, turn over and cook on the other side until tender, nicely browned and crispy on the edges, about five minutes. Season generously with salt and pepper, and serve hot.
