  • 1 head of cabbage chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup butter unsalted
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Salt & fresh ground pepper


  • Add chicken broth and butter into instant pot insert. Add chopped cabbage to the top. Close lid, ensuring that valve is set to "Sealing"
  • Cook on high pressure for 6 minutes. Once done, press Cancel on Instant Pot. Quick release by slowly moving valve to "Venting." Once all pressure is released, open lid.
  • Stir cabbage. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.




  • This recipe was prepared in a 6Qt Instant Pot Duo.
  • You can substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth. You can also omit the butter, but then it wouldn't be buttered cabbage.
  • Serve with a slotted spoon.
  • I highly recommend investing in a good black pepper grinder. There is nothing like fresh ground pepper.
