Simple Sautéed Cabbage

This tender cabbage is an easy side you can get on the table in about 25 minutes. Only three ingredients needed for this satisfying savory complement to any meal!
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 25 mins
Servings: 6 servings


  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil, extra virgin
  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 1 tsp salt

Optional: 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes for some heat


    • To shred cabbage, remove any tattered outer leaves. Cut the cabbage in half or in quarters. Carefully cut out the core and discard. Place the cabbage (halved or quartered) so flat side is touching the cutting board. Slice into thin shreds that are about about 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide.
    • Heat oil in a large skillet (I use my 12" for this recipe) over medium-high heat. Add shredded cabbage and salt. Stir. Let cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender with some browning, about 10 to 15 minutes. Taste and add more salt if desired.
