Secure the lid, place the regulator on top (depending on the type of pressure cooker you have), and turn heat to high. When the regulator begins to rock or the cooker reaches full pressure, lower temperature until the regulator is gently rocking (15 pounds per square inch). Cook for 3 minutes.

Immediately remove the cooker from heat. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions. Unlock and remove the lid. Transfer cabbage to a serving plate; serve hot.
