We really enjoyed this tasty and comforting dish. Thank you for sharing another winner with us Paula, it is sooo good. Quick and easy to make with ingredients often found in the pantry. I love the addition of the caraway seeds, gives it a lovely punch of bold flavor. The potatoes and cabbage were perfectly cooked. Made as written, but added a little brown sugar to the mix, personal preference only. A wonderful side or main dish with great flavor and wonderful textures.

This was a really good dish. I changed the proportions a little to have more potato and less cabbage. The bacon definitely makes it. I used 2 pieces of Trader Joe's uncured beef bacon, which is low in fat but has lots of flavor. We had this as a main side dish, so it fed 3.

Another keeper, Paula. I increased the bacon, I just couldn't help myself. My first time using caraway, and think this was one of the things that really gave this tater dish a real zing. Thanks for a great meal. Made for ZWT6

Wow, this was really delicous! We devoured this at dinner and I'm looking forward to eating a little bit of the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. The caraway seeds lend a wonderful flavour to the cabbage. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 6 :)

Paula you got a winner here!! I did use a bit more bacon, but controlled it a bit and only used 3 slices. I would even increase that more the next time as I am a huge bacon fan. I added the salt and pepper at the end while browning the potatoes. Loved, Loved, Loved this! Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens - ZWT6!! Danke!!

This is the best stuff ever, and I am a happy happy girl for choosing to make this today! To me this is ultimate comfort food. I could graze on this all day until the pan is gone. Really great recipe, I'll make this often. Thanks for sharing PaulaG! Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers.

REALLY GREAT!!! Let me preface this review by stating I dislike cabbage. I belong to an organic vegetable program and get all kinds of things delivered and cabbage and red potatoes came in this weeks shipment. I thought about tossing the cabbage since I've never had a good experience but I decided to get creative and try to work in the potatoes to see if that would improve things. THIS WAS FABULOUS! I actually really liked this a lot...which says a lot. My husband also hates cabbage and thought this was great as well. My kids didn't like it too much...but they don't like anything. I used turkey bacon (wouldn't recommend that again), more red onions than called for (about 3/4 cup), misread the directions and used 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar (would definitely keep it as I did it) and eyeballed the caraway seeds (which I didn't crush). WONDERFUL! Can't wait for the leftovers today. Made this with saucy burgers from this site and tomato basil pasta salad from this site for the 4th of July. GREAT FEAST! Thanks for posting.

I made this for dinner tonight, I needed a bit more than the 1/4c water but I think it just really depends on your spuds. Nice flavour, we liked it and the vinegar gave it a good tang. It would probably be nice with cider vinegar if you were out of red wine vinegar. Made for ZWT4.

Wonderful cabbage recipe and it's quite easy to make! It's not overly bacon-y, just enough to give the hint of smpokey bacon flavor. I used ground caraway seeds. So tasty! I'll make this again. Thanx!

So tasty! I love the intense licorice flavour of the caraway seeds. That really made the dish for us! I replaced the bacon with a slice of salami when I realized we were out of bacon, and it worked out just fine. Very quick to throw together! Thanks Paula!
