Savoy Cabbage with Pears and Chestnuts

Savoy Cabbage with Pears and Chestnuts

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced, lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup pear eau de vie, such as Poire William
  • 1 head savoy cabbage, cut into 1-inch square pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 large pear, diced into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup chestnuts, sliced


  • In a large, high sided sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the shallots. Cook the shallots until they are just golden brown, about 3 minutes. Add the pear eau de vie and the cabbage and cook, stirring until the cabbage is slightly wilted, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the heavy cream and cook until the cream becomes thick and coats the cabbage, 3 minutes longer. Add the pears and chestnuts and stir until warmed but not cooked through.

    Serve immediately.
