We liked this.. it smelled especially wonderful as it was cooking, but DH and I felt that it delived a bit less in taste once it was done. 45 minutes cooking time seemed rather rextreme and left the cabbage a lot more limp then we personally prefer. That is the main reason for the lower rating... I wouldn't mind to try this combination again with the bacon lightly grilled first and then the cabbage cooked until fractionally still crisp. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a recipe that, as it stands would need some major tweeking for us to enjoy it again. The smell of this while it cooks however is amazingly good, so I will try it again some time. Thanks!
