FRIED CABBAGE WITH DILL
We are a cabbage family. We love cabbage. Bigos, cabbage. Coleslaw, cabbage. Gołąbki, the best part is the cabbage. We especially love fried cabbage. It’s really easy if you have a food processor. It’s less easy if you don’t.
You’ll need: a small cabbage, carrot, onion, dill, cumin, salt & pepper, sugar, vinegar, flour, butter.
Here’s what to do:
Chop the onion and fry in a large frying pan using about 4 tablespoons of butter. When the onions soften and start to brown, add the grated cabbage and some grated carrot. This is where the food processor comes in handy. Hand grating isn’t my thing. Add some water and cook the cabbage till it’s soft. That will depend on the age of the cabbage and how thick it is cut. As the cabbage cooks add some salt, pepper, dill, and cumin to taste. Add a splash of vinegar and a teaspoon or two of sugar. Stir in some flour or other thickener. Cook everything down till the cabbage is soft and the liquid has reduced. Give it a taste and adjust the spices to your liking.
I hope you like it. Smacznego to you.

Jak na polską rodzinę przystało – kapusta. :)Do tego ziemniaki, wieprzowina, może śledzie, pikle…Ja tam lubię surówkę z kiszonej kapusty (zaleca się przepłukać trochę) z marchewką i oliwą z oliwek oraz z sokiem z cytryny. Nic trudnego a smaczny dodatek do obiadu.

Do you add cumin or caraway? We're not a cabbage family almost at all – bigos once a year and \”bigos\” from young cabbage with frankfurters maybe once-twice during the season.But sauerkraft is a different story, we're lucky having so many Polish shops here in the UK 🙂

Oh no, I'm not sure, which one is kminek?
czarownicaJanuary 14, 2015 at 3:53 pm
Caraway. Cumin is kmin (rzymski).They look similar, but taste differently – cumin is a typical Asian/Mediterranean spice.Wanted to clarify, as gonna try your recipe, thanks.

Thanks. I will change it. I read that some people add fried bacon as well.

czar – That's great. Cabbage lovers of the world unite! I'm not a food blogger so it's a wonderful experience for me to put a recipe online and for someone to make it. Discovering America over here 😉
