It takes only minutes to make nutty brown butter, but don't let your attention wander during that short period—the butter can go from golden to burnt very quickly. Have your sliced cabbage at hand to add to the skillet at just the right moment. Slideshow: Cabbage Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Cook the butter in a medium heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until it turns golden and nutty and the flecks on the bottom of the pan turn a rich caramel brown, about 6 minutes.

Step 2    

Add the cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted and crisp-tender, 5 to 8 minutes.

Step 3    

Stir in the poppy seeds and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately.
