Cajun-Style Smothered Cabbage

In just a short time, Anita 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.

Cajun-Style Smothered Cabbage

This Cajun-style smothered cabbage is absolutely perfect without the peppers, so if you don’t have any, don’t fret.

Also try my Cajun mashed potatoes and my crazy-good bacon-smothered cabbage.
