    alright! this was VERY tasty! I am Irish (born there) so am missing cabbage and had to try this on today St. Patricks Day I altered the recipe some by just shredding the cabbage and boiling it. I fried oh maybe 6 slices of American bacon and totally trimmed the fat, added some slivers of yellow onion fried crisply and tossed these both on the drained cabbage. I added salt and pepper (NO vinegar) and some melted IRISH butter (Kerry gold) and then broiled as recommended. It was absolutely delicious! I served with roast chciken and yellow rice! Definitely will make agaiN!  -  17 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The first time I ever liked Cabbage! I made this easy recipie for St. Pattys day with a couple small modifications: I added an eighth of a teaspoon of garlic to the melted butter and I used diced Turkey Ham instead of bacon. It was delicious! Everyone enjoyed it and I liked it so much that I am saving the recipie to incorporate into our regular diet and to modify for future dishes (going to see if the same recipie works well with brussle sprouts...could be fun!)  -  20 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't rate this one. I would never want to try this again and my guy thought it was excellent! We are both lovers of cabbage and we liked the ingredients in it - it rarely happens that we are so divided but it happened with this dish. Thanks submitter!  -  15 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
