Cooking cabbage in large wedges adds elegance to the otherwise ordinary winter vegetable; however, it can be difficult to get the cabbage cooked through to the core while also getting a gorgeous golden sear on the outside. Enter Sous Vide. In the Anova Precision cooker, it is as simple as sealing the cabbage with a little bit of butter and salt and letting the water bath become active. Once the cabbage is perfectly tender, it only needs a quick sear in butter before it is ready to serve.

Ingredients for 4

  • 1 medium head savoy cabbage, cut into four wedges, leaving the core intact

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 183ºF (83ºC).

  • Step 2

    Combine the cabbage with 1 tablespoon butter and the salt in a large zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the dry setting.

  • Step 3

    Place the bag in the water bath and set the timer for 4 hours. If using a zipper lock bag, you may need to weigh down the bag.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Remove the cabbage from the bag and pat dry with paper towels.

    • Step 2

      Heat the remaining tablespoon butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the cabbage and sear until golden brown on both cut sides, 5 to 7 minutes total. Serve.
