1 head green cabbage
1 clove garlic
4 T. butter
12 oz. Modelo Negra beer
Peel the outer leaves of the cabbage off. Turn the cabbage core side up and quarter the cabbage so that each section has a part of the core in it. Salt all sides of the cabbage liberally. Heat a 10” saute pan on medium high heat.
Smash the garlic and place it in the pan with 2 tablespoons of butter. When butter sizzles and garlic is fragrant, place the cabbage cut side down in the pan and let sear for about 4 min slowly. Flip the cabbage over and deglaze the pan with the beer. Let the beer simmer the cabbage and with a spoon baste the cabbage using the liquid. This liquid will begin to thicken. This will take another 4-5 min. Once the liquid has a saucy consistency add two more tablespoons of butter and continue to baste the cabbage. Turn off heat and place the cabbage on a plate, spooning the shiny sauce over the top.
Serve on it’s own or on the side of any meat or fish dish.
