This is a family favorite that my mother-in-law fixed for me while I was visiting her home last year. Serve over white rice, if desired.

Everyone enjoyed this recipe as a great side dish! I modified it to make it a bit healthier by cooking the onions celery and garlic in 1/4 cup vegetable broth instead of the butter and it came out great. Thanks for a quick and easy addition to any meal! Read More

My mother use to make this all the time. We make in a electric skillet & use 4 to 5 slices of bacon & use the grease from bacon drippings to the cabbage. Gives a much better flavor than regular butter. When finished cruble bacon pieces on top.. Yum yum good......... Read More

I made this tonight and it was delicious! I didn't have any stewed tomatos on hand but did have two can of "Hunt's diced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar basil and olive oil" which I threw in. Wow! The flavor was fantastic! Even my picky husband liked it. This was a new dish for us and it will be a keeper! Read More

A great recipe. However as a person of Polish descent married to a Polish man we prefer to omit tomatoes and to throw in caraway seeds. My grandmother prepared her's that way and it brings out a new taste. Read More

This dish has become a favorite at our house. Everyone raves about it -- even people who swore they hated cabbage. Usually I sautee sliced sweet Italian sausage and add a bit of anise seed. Which makes a darned good dish. This evening I was feeling a little adventuresome and wanted something more spicy. And seasoned the pot with basil rosemary and thyme. Then I added a can of Wye River crab soup at the end and heated through. Oh my gosh -- my husband thought he'd died and gone to heaven! Read More

Yummmm! Sounds weird but boy was it GOOD. Even hubby who made a bad face at it ate the whole bowl full. Followed the recipe but did add about a TBSP of bacon grease (it's a Southern thing!:) Chopped the cabbage up and only had to cook it about 25 minutes or so. I used a sweet Vadalia onion which I thought was a bit "too" sweet next time would use regular yellow onion or half regular half Vadalia. Will make this again. Thank you! Read More

It was pretty nice and easy. Though I doubled the stalks of cellery and the cloves of garlic; I also used some thyme. The result was good and I am glad to have some leftover to eat it tomorrow. I also recommend to let it stand more than half an hour after cooking; the cooler it gets the better it becomes. Read More

Very tasty. My kids ate it and they are pickey eaters. Stewing the cabbage and onions gave it a delicate sweetness that was well balanced my tomatoes. I will make it again but I might try adding some smoked kielbsa. Read More
