In just a short time, my wife and I have gone from rarely eating cabbage to having it on a regular basis. Sure, it’s great in slaws, but also great cold and fresh with a dip such as hummus or Ranch. Or roasted in the oven. Or grilled on cedar planks. And also, smothered and cooked in Cajun-style flavors.
This Cajun-style smothered cabbage comes out tender, with just a little bite to it. And great flavors. The cabbage soaks up the chicken broth flavors along with a nice hit from spicy Cajun seasoning. I added a few chopped bell peppers for a little crunch and some needed color.
This Cajun-style smothered cabbage is absolutely perfect without the peppers, so if you don’t have any, don’t fret. But I’d get some if I were you. They do add a wonderful flavor, texture, and some color!
I like to use my good ole trusty Dutch oven to make this cabbage dish and pretty much darned near anything like it on my stovetop. It’s nice and big and sturdy. That extra weight helps it maintain and distribute heat perfectly. As an added bonus, it’s actually pretty easy to clean up too!
