How long does it take to boil cabbage?

It takes about 8-10 minutes to boil a head of cabbage. If you rather not cook the cabbage in a large skillet like in this Jamaican cabbage recipe simply shred cabbage into slices and boil.

Can you overcook cabbage?

Although cabbage can be eaten cooked or raw, it will be limp if overcooked and may result in a terrible smell caused by the sulfur compounds. For the Jamaican cabbage recipe be sure to steam long enough that it remains slightly crunchy.

How do you know when cabbage is done?

When cooking Jamaican cabbage make sure that you serve while slightly crunchy. Do not steam all the ingredients so that it is limp.

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Saute onion and peppers in oil. Add garlic, carrot and cabbage.

Step 2

Add spices and water.

Step 3

We really enjoyed this different way to have cabbage! I used coleslaw, fire roasted peppers and a Thai chili, which gave this dish the perfect amount of heat for us. Thanks for sharing dienia! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
