A wonderful surprise! This is not the typical cooked cabbage dish. The celery and cabbage retain some of their crunch while adding flavor to to the dish. It's like eating a hot salad with a complexity of flavors. Cabbage combined with smokey bacon, tomatoes sweetened by onions, green pepper and a bit of sugar and celery which adds an oriental twist. A very colorful dish with great flavor and texture. Thanks MG, for a new cabbage favorite!

And I don't even like cooked cabbage!, but this is really good! I only cooked the cabbage to crisp-tender as I am a texture-sensitive person, and I like the crunch. I served it with [recipe=43114]Uncle Larry's Texas Short Ribs 43114[/recipe] and it was the perfect side dish.
