The Dinner Diaries, episode 3

Today we’re cooking up some: Steak & Pan-Fried Cabbage.


(4) NY Strip Steaks [or any type that you prefer/can afford], (1) head of cabbage, (1) stick of butter, salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder.


Cut off the stem of the head of cabbage. Cut the cabbage head in half, and then quarters.

After doing this, cut the quarters up into small pieces. There’s not right or wrong way to do this. Just make the pieces a size you feel is comfortable to eat.

In a non-stick skillet, melt half the stick of butter at medium-high heat.

Add all of the cabbage to the pan.

Mix and stir the cabbage around, making sure all has a chance to sit on the pan surface.

Add more butter to the cabbage as needed to prevent burning.

Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.

Cook the cabbage until lightly brown. (Or longer if you like it slightly darker).

While your cabbage is cooking, preheat your oven to broil.

Place all the steaks on a baking pan, and season with: salt, pepper, garlic, and chili powder. (The chili powder isn’t very spicy and gives the meat a nice flavor).

Place in the oven to broil, for 5-6 minutes depending on thickness and your desired temperature (rare, medium rare, medium, or well done).

Plate, serve, and enjoy!

(Side note: 1 Head of cabbage easily gets four servings)
