  • 1/3 cup chicken broth

  4. Thinly slice the cabbage wedges crosswise. Toss the drained leeks with the cabbage.
  5. Heat the butter in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  6. Add the leeks and cabbage and saute, while stirring, for 8 minutes.
  7. Add the chicken broth, salt, and pepper and simmer, covered, ​for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cabbage is cooked but is still slightly crunchy.
