I am not giving this any stars because I made some changes to the recipe. I used green cabbage, "regular" beer, yellow prepared mustard and I did not add any caraway seeds because I could not find mine. The outcome was still very good. It gave the cabbage a nice flavor and it was tender. Sometimes when you cook cabbage it can be a little "gassy" but this was not gassy at all.

I'm surprised no one has rated this. Cabbage is almost the only veggie DH will eat. I used green cabbage but we liked it. Will probably use low fat ham next time to cut down on fat. Keeper. Thanks
