Wonderful! I'm always looking for different ways to cook cabbage for my kielbassa sausage dinner. So easy to make, and the flavors are wonderful together. Super good. I will add this one to my T&T book. Thanks Dorothy!

I cut the recipe back to two servings. I didn't precook the cabbage Only light spray of no fat oil, put the raw cabbage & onions in my cast iron pan medium heat covered with tight lid, stirred every couple of minutes after about 15 minutes I added 1 tsp Splenda brown sugar & 1 1/2 tsp caraway seeds The cabbage and onions were wonderful
