Instant Pot Lemon & Parsley Cabbage has a buttery texture and mellow cabbage flavor spiked with parsley, lemon and garlic.
I love the ease of chopping up cabbage and tossing it into the Instant Pot to cook. Add a little butter (or olive oil) and garlic + ½ cup water, and you've got yourself a healthy vegetable side dish.
Parsley and lemon add a burst of flavor that brightens up the cooked cabbage.
I also really like cooking heartier greens in my pressure cooker, like Instant Pot Collard Greens.
What Does Pressure-Cooked Cabbage Taste Like?
Cabbage cooked in your Instant Pot has a mild, slightly sweet cabbage flavor and a texture that is silky and tender.
I like adding garlic for more flavor, but you can skip the garlic if you like.
Cooking Time for Pressure Cooker Cabbage
I like to cook cabbage for only 2 minutes on high pressure in my Instant Pot, with a quick release right when the cooking time is done. The cabbage is tender but still has a slight firmness that you can stick a fork into. It won't have any crunchiness, but it also won't be limp and super-soft.
If you like really soft, buttery braised cabbage then bump the cooking time up to 3 minutes on high pressure.
