Suspiciously Delicious Cabbage

I got this recipe from food52 and decided to keep the name as is, but honestly, there's nothing suspicious about why this cabbage is so delicious. Sauteed with butter, onion, garlic, ginger and then finished with cream - how could it not be? Really it would be suspicious if you added all that and it didn't come out delicious. So if you can stomach cabbage (because I know some people suffer from suspiciously vicious gas pains afterwards), go ahead and try this (this is why I never went into sales).

Serves 4-6

2 tablespoons butter
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon (heaping) grated fresh ginger
1 medium green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
3/4 cup heavy cream
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1.      In a very large pan, heat the butter over medium heat until it is melted and starting to bubble a little. Stir in the onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened.
2.      Stir in the ginger and cook for about a minute. Then, add in the cabbage, stirring well to coat it with the butter and other flavors. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 15-20 minutes, until the cabbage has softened and caramelized.
3.      Turn the heat to low and stir in the cream making sure to scrape any browned bits up from the pan bottom. Cover and cook over low for about 10 minutes.
4.      Uncover, add salt and pepper to taste. Then cook for a few more minutes, stirring once or twice, to let some of the liquid evaporate. Adjust seasonings as desired and serve.
