"Very easy recipe with nice flavor to complement many main dishes. I also had to cook the cabbage a lot longer. I ended up putting a lid on the pan to help steam it so it would get tender faster."

"I used Splenda and olive oil and was really tasty. I did have to cook it a lot longer; maybe my pieces were too big. Went well with Polish sausage and pierogies. I will definitely make this again."

"Used honey instead of sugar and added 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup rice. Will definitely use this one again."

"I made this for New Year's dinner today instead of sauerkraut. Served with barbecued pork roast and added a half can of chicken broth to the cooking. Yum!"
