Very tender, very flavorful vegetable side. Based on this recipe, seems like Army cooks don't think much of cabbage.

Taste like the cabbage I fell in love with as a youth. The cabbage was tender and sweet (where'd that come from?) I used maple bacon and just loved this recipe. Read More

If you like more of the savory cabbage flavor I would recommend omitting the vinegar. A good addition would be to use chicken broth instead of water. Read More

Loved it. Added a bit of garlic powder tomato paste and a dash of hot sauce. Also I used beef stock instead of water. Freezes well so make a ton of it. Read More

I made this recipe one night and it was SUPER GOOD! My fiancé is very health and taste conscious and he said the flavor was incredible. The next day he found a recipe for "Healing Soup" and it was a similar recipe with one addition stewed or cut up tomatoes. I added the extras and had a SECOND SUPER MEAL! So this recipe is very versatile. Eat it as the Chef posted or add stewed tomatoes and have a second super supper that's Healing to boot. Read More
