      This went along with roast beef tonight. Selected largely because I had some aging cabbage that was taking up room in an overcrowded ZWT fridge, lol. Glad that I did, I had 4 at the table and 3 of us really enjoyed while DH was his usual curmudgeon self (he misses out on so much good stuff!). Anyway, I just followed the recipe and had a very nice side, the gravy tasted good on it too. :D

      I scaled for 3 serves which were generous and delicious. As my cabbage was rather large I used less than a 1/4 of it, thank you, made for pammyowl's cookathon in her memory in Name that Ingredient tag game.
