0/7 Instructions
  • Cut all the ingredients: grate the cabbage, onion, and carrot with a mandolin so that it is very fine. The rest of the ingredients cut into thin strips.
  • Boil the 6 cups of water.
  • Add the boiled water to the cabbage. Then add the rest of the vegetables.
  • Add the salt. Mix it up and taste it. If you think it needs more salt, add more salt.
  • Wait for it to cool down a bit so you don't burn yourself. Then put everything (minus some of the water) in a large glass jar (leave room for the cup of vinegar).
  • Add the oregano and mix it in the glass jar.
  • Add the vinegar. If you want more acid, add more.


AND READY!!! The cabbage for pupusas is ready. Now you can enjoy it with some delicious pupusas, fried yucca, empanadas, with snacks and fried street food.
