"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."
