I made this recipe exactly as written with the exception that I accidentally added twice as much onion as it called for. I personally despise onion so I was quite worried about how it would turn out but it was delightful. Read More

Sorry - this wasn't a hit in my home. We prefer just cooking the cabbage and onions in butter, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Read More

Absolutely delicious. Thank you for this recipe! This was my first time ever attempting to cook cabbage. This recipe made it really accessible. I made a few tweaks, based on my love of spices and full-bodied flavor: -I doubled the basics —whole onion, whole cabbage, 4 Tbs butter, 2 c water, 2 Tsp Kosher salt -I pumped up the vinegar bc I love it so much (and it is so good for you): 3 Tbs apple cider vinegar + 2 Tbs strawberry balsamic -Used 3 Tbs vs 2 (when doubling) of whit sugar, which turned out to be a great ratio with the sweeter vinegars -After melting the butter, I put in the following spices: ground black pepper, celery seed, turmeric, smoked paprika and a bay leaf. Stir and let the spices bloom in the hot butter to create an excellent flavor base -I sautéed the (red) onion for a good 10 minutes prior to adding the cabbage -Took time to soften down the veg mixture before adding the water, vinegar, sugar and salt With the extra vinegar, it turned out almost like a rich soup/borscht, and was absolutely delicious and so healthful eaten right from a bowl. Great suggestion to pair with rye bread. I will play with this by adding sliced tart apples, raisins, and using red cabbage. Cheers! Read More

This is just a basic solid cabbage dish. It's better than boiled and not as greasy as fried. The vinegar sugar and caraway seeds add good flavor and a bit of tanginess. Read More
