Eh, it was alright.. kinda bland in my opinion but atleast my sister liked it so I guess she'll be making it again for herself, thanks for the recipe.

My grandma makes cabbage with onion and a spoon of sugar so I tried it out with this and it was amazing.

Kenleigh Prutsman

I love cabbage so much, my trick is to add some shredded apple for a more fresh taste and a little bit of sweetness.

Austyn Wyeth

Actually quite filling despite it just being a bunch of cabbage I wasn't hungry at all afterwards and it taste great.

Jazlynn Mhoon

My kids are not big fans so I won't be making it a lot but I'll be cooking it again for my husband.

Nellie Beckstrand

I was looking for a new option on how to serve veggies to my family and this looked like a fun and very tasty meal, I was right.

Eisley Bismark

This recipe made me a cabbage lover, usually I'm not a fan of anything green but this was absolutely delicious.

Anneliese Feigelson

I made this to take to work and it tasted just fine even after being packaged for a while but not that filling sadly.

Arely Baab

This is my new favorite recipe for cabbage, well this one and the spicy chicken and cabbage one, both were equally as delicious.

Melinda Heeg

My mom is from Germany and she always adds bacon in her sautéed cabbage, I started doing it too now and it taste really good when combined.

Elissa Sc

Its not bad but I prefer the vegan cabbage steak since it has a lot more flavor added to it compared to just plain cabbage.

Vivianna Policicchio

A perfect choice as a side dish for our family barbecues, everyone enjoyed this yummy cabbage.

Nathalie Kaczkowski

Quick and easy just how I like it. Perfect recipe for someone lazy like myself and it's healthy!

Andie Sturza

Really good. I didn’t expect to like this recipe at all since I was sure there wouldn't be much of a taste to it, ended up changing my mind and bookmarking the page!

Lilyanna Sherard

Making this for family night as a side dish again because the first time I made it everyone fell in love :)

Opal Nighbert

I tried this recipe with a mix of red and white cabbage it turned out really good as well so I'd recommend doing the same.


Easy and delicious!
