(Un) Stuffed Cabbage
If you’ve ever made stuffed cabbage, God Bless ya!I have only eaten stuffed cabbage made by others, but I have always loved it. Making it is certainly a labor of love, and the cook time requires patience. I couldn’t even tell you how long the total process takes, but I can only guess several hours.
I wanted to get the flavors, but I wanted to do it the lazy way. Yeah, I said it. I wanted a lazy version of stuffed cabbage, and I don’t feel the least bit bad about it.
(Un) stuffed Cabbage!
I have made this on the stove top in my dutch oven. Same process, but the cook time takes about an hour and a half between prep, sauté, bringing to a boil, simmering…during which I stir ever 10 minutes or so. Did I mention I always make quite a mess on my stove top, too? Stove top unstuffed cabbage is lazier than stuffed cabbage, but not lazy enough! 😛
This Instant Pot Pressure Cooker version takes 5 minutes of prep, 5 minutes of hands on cook time, 10 minutes cook time in the pressure cooker – all in all, with the time it takes to pressurize your cooker and depressurize it, You can be eating this delicious UnStuffed Cabbage in under an hour – with only 10 minutes of hands on work?!
Though I will quote the Instant Pot in this recipe, it can be adapted for any pressure cooker!
Doesn’t it look good enough to DEVOUR?
