How to prepare cabbage for cooking
To begin, it’s essential to prepare the cabbage properly for cooking. Start by washing the cabbage thoroughly and then cut it in half. Next, remove the tough stems by cutting a “V” shape around the core. Once the core is removed, lay the cabbage halves side by side and cut each half into four separate pieces. Finally, slice across the pieces and cut the cabbage into 1-inch pieces. Don’t worry if it falls apart—it’s all part of the cooking process.
How to cook cabbage in an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker
Now that your cabbage is prepared, it’s time to bring out the Instant Pot. Begin by adding 1 cup of chicken broth to the insert, followed by your desired amount of butter. Place the cut cabbage on top, ensuring it doesn’t interfere with the lid closing. Remember, the cabbage will shrink as it cooks, so you can fill the Instant Pot to the top.
Set your Instant Pot to high pressure and cook for 6 minutes. Once the timer goes off, perform a quick release and add salt and pepper to taste.
How long does it take to cook cabbage in a pressure cooker?
The cooking time may vary depending on your preferences. For a tender yet firm cabbage, 6 minutes is the sweet spot. However, if you prefer a bit more crunch, you can reduce the cooking time to 4 minutes. Keep in mind that each pressure cooker may have different time requirements. With this recipe, it typically takes around 15 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure.
Can I substitute ingredients?
Of course! Feel free to get creative and customize the recipe to your liking. If you prefer a vegetarian option, substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth. Additionally, you can add other vegetables such as carrots or thick-cut potatoes to enhance the dish’s flavor and texture.
