Irish Bacon And Cabbage Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 214
This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality Irish back bacon but if you can't get this, it tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green colour of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour.

Cabbage, Polish Sausage, and Pierogies

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
This is a meal I threw together one night when one of my lady friends came over -- and being a few days before payday I didn't have money to take her out to eat, so I whipped this up with things I had in the house. Now she wants to come over here for dinner all the time, so I figured it was good enough to post here!

Ukrainian Meat Filled Cabbage Rolls

Rating: 4.5 stars 69
In Ukrainian kitchens, cabbage leaves are often used as cases for soft fillings. These rolls are a little different, because the leaves are filled with a meat stuffing and not primarily a cereal mixture. This makes them 'holiday' fare. For a different flavor, use tomato juice instead of chicken broth. See the note at the bottom of the recipe for pressure cooking instructions.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
My version of an old favorite Ashkenazi Jewish recipe. I make a stock first, then make the soup. This allows for de-fatting for a healthier soup, but you need to make this on two days, so time accordingly. For a healthier version, use sucralose instead of sugar - there is virtually no taste difference in sweet and sour recipes such as this one. Using Savoy cabbage gives the soup superlative texture and flavor.

Savoy Cabbage and Mushrooms

Rating: 5 stars 10
A simple recipe for savoy cabbage and mushrooms I often make in the fall, either as a side or as part of a vegetarian meal.

Waldorf Cabbage Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
My dad always made this for Thanksgiving and Christmas. He called it Waldorf Salad, but it is really a cabbage salad 'Waldorf style'.

Corned Beef and Cabbage Shepherd's Pie

Rating: 5 stars 25
This is a combination of my favorite corned beef and cabbage recipe, and my favorite shepherd's pie recipe. It involves a few extra steps when compared to your traditional boiled beef dinner, but the payoff at the end is well worth the extra effort. By layering the ingredients in a casserole dish, each serving has the perfect proportions of beef, cabbage, carrots, and potatoes.

Hearty Country Ham and Cabbage Soup

This is a quick and easy comfort food, a meal in a bowl, that is ideal for cold winter evenings.
