no brainer

Savoy cabbage........

Daughter and I are addicted to this Jamie Oliver recipe.

Cabbage braised in Worcestershire sauce

1 large Savoy cabbage
Olive oil
1/2 cup or more Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
knob of butter or two

1.Remove and wash the outer green leaves of the cabbage, then roll them up like a cigar and finely slice them – this is called ‘chiffonade’. Cut the cabbage in half, remove core and finely chop/slice the rest.

2. Put a LARGE frying pan on a high heat and add a good glug of olive oil. Add the sliced cabbage to the pan and move it around, giving it a good shake. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes.

3. Add the Worcestershire sauce and some salt and pepper.

4. Keep moving the cabbage around so it all gets nicely coated and cook for another 4 minutes until it has softened. Keep an eye on it, moving and tossing it around so it doesn’t catch on the bottom of the pan. Remove the pan from the heat and add butter – this will give it a nice sweetness.

I bought a savoy cabbage and it went bad in the fridge because I couldn't figure out what to do with it.
Thanks for the recipe idea.
