Side Dish Essentials: Sautéed Onions & Cabbage

Made this last evening to use up a head of cabbage, wound up with a tasty combination of crunch and flavors.

FYI: The toasted, crushed fennel is what really makes this recipe.

I love sautéed cabbage because there are so many things that you can do with it. Use it as a side, or mix it with beef, chicken, pork, or even fish. Sometimes I make it and eat it all by itself.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
