Once cabbage is wilted and tossed with a bit of butter and seasoning, you'll want to make it as a side dish more often.

Great Idea, adding the vinegar to the water. I love cabbage, always dreaded making corned beef and cabbage for St. Patricks day just for that reason. Thanks much

Dear Auntiegen, Try splashing a tablespoon of plain white vinegar in the cooking water. It doesn't add a flavor, but it neutralizes the odor. Russians eat a LOT of cabbage, every which way you can imagine. Stuffed, brined, stuffed into pasta, sauted, stuffed into pastry, shredded into soup, you name it, we've done it. Tastes so good, but can be stinky!

My grandmother was from Ireland and every meal had cabbage. Even as a child I loved cabbage. Raw, cooked, baked, and steamed.

Being Irish I remember the smell f cooking cabbage when I was small and I have never cooked it to this day! Is that aroma part of the deal?

Cooking for so long, with or without a lid, makes an unappetizing mush of a good vegetable. Whatever happened to "crisp tender?"

This is so great, a very overlooked side dish. You can also do it on the grill. I prefer regular cabbage, either way....delicious and healthy.
