  • 8 oz sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 T-4T salted butter
  • 6 cups shredded cabbage cut 1-2mm thick
  • ½ tsp. seasoning salt
  • ½ tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. granulated garlic
  • ¼ tsp. white pepper finely ground – optional


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat fry the mushrooms in 2 Tbsp. of butter until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add the cabbage and seasonings. Continue to fry over medium-high heat. Stir frequently. If the food starts to stick turn down the stove a bit or add a few Tablespoons of water or the rest of the butter.
  • Once the cabbage loses its crispness and starts to turn golden brown taste it. Add more salt if desired (try adding ¼ tsp. at a time until you get the flavor you want). Add the rest of the butter if desired.
  • Serve hot as a vegetarian main dish or as a side dish for pork chops, roasted chicken, pork roast, steak or turkey.


Substitution Notes: Bacon grease makes a great sub here for part or all of the butter depending on taste.
