Venetian Cabbage

Venetian Cabbage

If you still have some cabbage sitting around after St. Patrick’s Day, you might want to try making Venetian cabbage. This Italian-inspired recipe really elevates the humble cabbage.

I love cabbage in all sorts of dishes. Maybe it’s my Eastern European roots. I really love it prepared this way.

Smokiness from the pancetta and a hint of rosemary and garlic really makes this dish sing. I made it last night, but didn’t cook it as long as the original recipe called for. I think I prefer it less cooked. The cabbage retained some crispness. My best advice is to taste this dish as it cooks to see how “done” you like it.

Cook bacon, garlic and rosemary and oil in saucepan until mixture starts to sizzle. Stir in the cabbage, tossing to coat well. Cook, covered, over low heat for an hour, or a little less,  adding the stock or wine a little at a time. Add salt to taste before serving. Serves 6.
