I found this a great way to prepare cabbage. It is very flavorful if you add a little bouillon base to the liquid. I went a step further and added a small amount of dill, some pepper...and a diced potato to absorb the balance of the liquid. Then I threw a can of corned beef in. It was delicious. My husband and I both had seconds. Read More

This was great!!! I have always made cabbage by boiling it with lots of seasonings, but this is how I will always do it for now on. Even my husband liked it a lot. So I will definately keep making this!! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

This was really good. I used the prepackaged coleslaw and prepackaged matchstick carrots.It was super simple to prep. I will make this more often! Read More

this is a perfect recipe. we're south beach and skipped carrots and used just one packet of sweetener instead of sugar. the cooking time is spot on and I like that my youngsters ate it. we ate a ton and didn't feel guilty. the cabbage also accepted the sauce from our entree perfectly. Read More

Great recipe! I used one bag of shredded cabbage (like you use to make slaw), added 2 cubed chicken breasts while the carrots cooked and served over La Choy chow mein noodles. My family loved it and went back for seconds! We also used a little soy sauce on our individual plates after being served. Read More

This recipe is delicious! However, I tweaked it slightly. I added 3 medium potatoes, diced, and added 2 1/2 cups broth. It is delicious and even better for leftovers! Read More

This was great! I love cabbage but was so sick of having plain cabbage boiled in water. This has great flavors and made an excellent side dish. Read More

I didn't have carrots on hands so I left them out but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I love the way the cabbage sweetens as it cooks and the garlic is a nice contrast. I served it with spaghetti and my husband said it was a great "peasant" meal. Often simple is best, thank you!! Read More

Excellent quick dish, although I didn't add the sugar only because I wanted it to be a healthy meal all around, I will be making this dish for Thanksgiving yum yum Read More
