Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add caraway seeds; cook, stirring constantly, until aromatic, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium; add oil and butter; cook, stirring constantly, until the butter melts, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cabbage and shallots; stir to coat well. Cook, stirring often, until the cabbage is slightly wilted, about 6 minutes. Stir in wine; cook, undisturbed, over medium-high heat until most of the wine has evaporated, about 1 minute. Stir in broth, vinegar, thyme, pepper and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, undisturbed, until the cabbage has softened, but still has some texture, about 20 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated and any remaining liquid is a saucy consistency, about 10 minutes. Stir in parsley.
