Cooking more of the things I love at homeOctober 29, 2012 By PDGDS333
I knew that cabbage was boiled but since I had never had it outside a resteraunt I had no idea how NOT to over cook them. I was shocked to find out that butter salt and pepper was all it took to be DELICIOUS.

Easy to modifyAugust 15, 2011 By katiecee
We are watching what we eat and cabbage is a great diet food. I only shook a few shakes of salt into the water and skipped the butter entirely. I served it with a salt and pepper shaker so we could add what we wanted to taste. Quick and easy and will remember this one for sure!

Simple and tastyMarch 17, 2011 By Ms_Tre
@Rodcre8s - The first line states to add 1/2 inch of water. This recipe is simple and foolproof. Very tasty!

Good but lack vital detailMarch 16, 2009 By Rodcre8s
The recipe is a good recipe. However it lacks vital details on how much water to use. This is a vital detail because of salt and butter content. a gallon of water that has a 1/2 teaspoon of salt will make the cabbage taste significantly different that a half teaspoon of salt in 2 quarts. This is also the case with butter. Again, the recipe is good but needs instructions on pot size and (in general) how much water.

Perfect for what I needed it forFebruary 26, 2009 By Mysti68
We make a lot of jerk and spicy foods. Sometimes a 'calmer' side dish is exactly what it needs. This was what I was looking for regarding length of cooking time, etc.
