Fried cabbage is so good with potatoes, deviled eggs and corn bread, with blackberry cobbler for dessert. We grew our own cabbage and potatoes, and it was always fun to go wild blackberry pickin' in the woods.

"We loved this but I did saute a few carrots and a red bell pepper into it. Guess I just felt it needed a little more body. We had it in a bowl with biscuits on the side. Great meal."

"I think next time I would like to add some additional veggies (I only added carrots tonight) to make it seem more like a main dish. Very good"

"If you like a spicy side dish, this is it, and it's easy to prepare. I put a splash of barbeque sauce on my serving, and it tasted like the smoked cabbage appetizer I had recently at a restaurant."

"This was outstanding. We had it tonight for our New Year's meal along with country-style ribs, black-eyed peas, and cornbread. My husband had two helpings, and I don't know why anyone would not have this again. It was very flavorful, and not overwhelming at all. Excellent recipe! One that I will make again, and again. My only change was to substitute unsalted butter for regular butter."

"My husband and I LOVED this cabbage recipe. The Crushed Pepper gives it a little "kick". Definitely not your boring cabbage side."
