2 cups finely shredded green cabbage
1 chopped onion
1⁄4 cup butter
6 cups chicken or 6 cups beef broth
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
1⁄2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese or 1⁄2 cup sour cream (optional)
Melt the butter in a large saucepan and cook the cabbage and onion in it at a low heat until cabbage is limp (should not get browned).
Add broth, salt, pepper and cover and simmer 15-20 minutes.
The sour cream or cheddar is an optional topping to be added after serving.
