This is very good! It has a very mild un-cabbagey flavor that if topped with a little vinegar would taste like excellently cooked sauerkraut, but without, is mild enough for anyone who dislikes either cabbage or kraut. I served this with grilled smoked sausage. Thanks for sharing!

I found this a delightful cabbage recipe, I cooked exactly as per the recipe and it was perfect, colour as well. I do think the sour cream is what makes this recipe stand out from other cabbage recipes. Will definately be making this again.

This was very easy to make, and enjoyable. I did cook the cabbage a bit longer, so it was limper than the chef probably intended, but I liked it that way.
