    5 stars all the way it's the best vietnamese cabbage cups you can make without paying at a traditional resturant.

    Irene Babecki

    Another great idea from the lovely Lilly, everything you make comes out like a 10 star resturant

    Red cabbage is the best lunch/snack you can have it's not only healthy but so simple along with everything else in this dish.

    Lilyann Rava

    Very tasty cabbage and chicken cups, going to be making them again for sure.

    Tia Stitts

    A lot of oil for this, I'd say add only 2 tbsp instead of a 3 unless you want the whole thing to be extra oily.

    Larissa Seyfarth

    This was good but didn't like the fish sauce in it at all, not going to add it again.

    Azalea Labhart

    Wasn't too sure I'd like this but turned out pretty damn good.

    Deanna Octave

    Dodged the mint cause I hate the taste other than that it was good.

    Joelle Zanis

    Sort've zesty but I approve was amazingly refreshing and easy to cook.

    Stacy Bubash

    Perfect appetizer keeps you full but not too full for the main dish which I ended up making some spicy and sweet stuffed chicken breast.

    Ariyah Santago

    Instead of canola oil I used regular olive oil, didn't taste that much different and was still yummy.

    Neveah Newhauser

    Used brown sugar instead of white incase it would have a slightly sweet taste to it.

    Macey Babani

    Holy crap this was super spicy I recommend not adding paprika and chili if your eyes tear up after a bite of anything spicy like me.

    Ellery Dugay

    Brilliant and simple recipe exactly what I was looking for on this website thanks for sharing.

    Ailani Zenker

    Only had to use half an onion since I didn't make so many cabbage cups but its a crowd pleaser for sure.

    Jazlynn Mhoon

    Instead of ground chicken I used beef for the second time making this, the chicken was better but the beef was less dry and actually more juicy.

    Amiah Zayat

    Delicious I actually added a little less paprika maybe like 1/4 just so it wouldn't be too hot.

    Arely Baab

    First time I've ever made anything Vietnamese I hope they turned out like they were supposed to haha.


    I love it! Yummy!
