      I made this as directed and really enjoyed it. The sweet and sour flavor of the cabbage went well with the sausage. Thanks for sharing.

      I really enjoyed the recipe. I cooked a slice of bacon and rendered the fat and flavor. The sugar and onions caramelized beautifully. The cabbage was of the green variety and not the red. As I do not cook with beer I substituted chicken stock. One granny smith and one Jonathan apple was used. Even with my changes this was delicious one dish supper which I am looking forward to making with the red cabbage. Thank you much for posting.

      I'm not going to rate this because I think I must have messed it up, it was very bitter and the only one who liked it, oddly enough, was my 2 y/o. I think I might have burned the sugar or maybe the cabbage was bitter? I don't know, but the final product was so bad that I won't make it again. It must have been my mistake because the other reviewer loved it and you said it was a staple. I wish it would have worked, the concept sounded really good!
