Decadent and oh so delicious! We loved this recipe. It was so easy to make (made on St. Patty's Day) and was so creamy that the sauce also covered some of the fish we were having as a main entree. We were grateful as this improved a rather lackluster main dish. The only change we made was to finely dice the red onion versus grating it. I loved it and would have it again. Thanks, Diner! Made for Rookie Tag Spring 2013.

Fantastic! This is so easy and inexpensive and makes a wonderful side dish. I am a big fan of cabbage, and I love to find recipes like this. I made this just as written and loved it. Thanx!

This was so delicious! I made this exactly as posted, except I diced the red onion, rather than shredding it. The flavor was mild, yet very tasty. I seasoned this very well with the white pepper and salt. This was also quite easy to put together. I served this with corned beef for a nice change of pace. I will be making this again!
