(My Way of ) Steamed Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I remember when I was growing up watching my great aunt cook and listening to all her tips on cooking and was thinking about her fried cabbage.... so this morning (new years day) I decided to use up the cabbage I had left in the refrigerator. I added my own touch to my aunts way of steaming. She just usually steamed her cabbage in bacon grease, I like to kick my food up just a notch! :) The measurements in this recipe might be off a bit but the main thing is getting the flavor of the spices.

  6. Cover with lid and steam on low for 20 minutes or until tender.

Sorry I just didn't care for this dish. It wasn't bad it just wasn't for me. I think it was all those spices. I didn't care for the beau monde seasoning. The salt and seasoning salt made it a little more salty than I cared for. Glad I tried it though.

Very tasty cabbage! I cut back on the pepper for our tastes and didn't have mushrooms for this first attempt. I'll definitely make this again - this recipe really reminds me of my mother's Southern cooking. Thanks for sharing.
