Reviews for Fried Cabbage
"Although my husband and I have never had fried cabbage before, we really enjoyed this recipe!"
"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."
"Mate loved this. It was tasty and not greasy like folks made back home. Next time i will cook a little longer til more tender."
"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."
"Made this for New Years it was very good I will make this again."
"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."
"This is a very good recipe if you like cabbage with no additives. Yes I would fix again."
"My husband and I LOVED this cabbage recipe. The Crushed Pepper gives it a little "kick". Definitely not your boring cabbage side."
"whipped it up in 10 minutes! Lovely recipe!"
