What’s in Ham and Cabbage
Butter – For this ham and cabbage recipe I used butter, but you could also use olive oil or avocado oil.
Ham – Simply cube any leftover ham into bite-sized pieces. Add the cubed ham to the pan with the melted butter. Let the ham get slightly crispy on the outside.
Onion – This recipe also calls for one white onion. Simply peel the onion and slice it. Add the onion to the pan with the butter and the cubed ham. You’ll want the onions to get soft and slightly caramelized.
Cabbage – Wash your cabbage and make sure it is dry. Core the cabbage and remove and hard pieces. Slice the cabbage into easy to eat bite-sized pieces. Add it to the pan with the other ingredients.
Black pepper- Add about ½ teaspoon of black pepper to this recipe. You most likely will not need salt since the ham is already salty.
