How To Make Jamaican Steamed Cabbage?

To prepare Jamaican Steamed Cabbage, shred cabbage, and carrot thinly discarding the inner core of the cabbage. Fresh thyme is the herb that is traditionally used for this dish, although for most of the year I have thyme in my garden, at times I use Culinary Thyme Leaves.

  1. Remove outer leaves of cabbage, cut in half, using a knife slice thinly discarding the inner core. Shred or thinly slice the carrot.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Sauté onion, garlic, bell pepper, thyme, green onion and salt.
  3. Add cabbage and carrots and stir well. Add water or broth and whole Scotch Bonnet pepper.
  4. Cover and allow to cook for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
