I was going to post a similar recipe, but this is close to what I made so I'm commenting instead. It's very tasty and simple to make. It takes time to chop up and cook the cabbage atop the stove, tho.

I added a can of sauerkraut to the stewing cabbage and spiced it up with 2 T of paprika, a T of cayenne pepper, and 3 T of mustard seeds. I like the mouth feel of the cooked up whole mustard seeds with the cabbage.

It goes great with kielbasa. Also, a T of honey or molasses will add a lot of flavor.
