Recipe Ingredients for Worlds Best Braised Cabbage

1 3/4 lbs green cabbage
8 oz yellow onion (about 8 ounces)
3 oz baby carrots
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Recipe Directions for Worlds Best Braised Cabbage

  1. 1-Heat the oven to 325. Lightly oil a large gratin dish or a baking dish (9 by 13 inch works well).

  2. 2-Trimming the cabbage: Peel off and discard any bruised or ragged outer leaves from the cabbage. The cabbage should weigh close to 2 pounds (if you don?t have a kitchen scale, consult the grocery store receipt). If the cabbage weighs more than 2 pounds, it won?t fit in the baking dish and won?t braise as beautifully. To remedy this, cut away a wedge of the cabbage to trim it down to size. Save the leftover wedge for salad or coleslaw. Then cut the cabbage into 8 wedges. Arrange the wedges in the baking dish, they may overlap some, but do your best to make a single layer.

  3. 3-The Braise:Scatter in the onion and carrot. Drizzle over the oil and stock or water. Season with salt, pepper, and the pepper flakes. Cover tightly with foil, and slide into the middle of the oven to braise until the vegetables are completely tender, about 2 hours. Turn the cabbage wedges with tongs after an hour. Don?t worry if the wedges want to fall apart as you turn them: just do your best to keep them intact. If the dish is drying out at all, add a few tablespoons of water.

  4. 4-The finish: Once the cabbage is completely tender, remove the foil, increase the oven heat to 400, and roast until the vegetables begin to brown, another 15 minutes or so. Serve warm or at room temperature, sprinkled with coarse salt.
