This is one of my original recipes that my family really likes, and is easy to make but takes about one hour to prepare and cook.

This was good but I was a bit confused with the ingredients and instructions. The ingredients have 2 tablespoons of olive oil but no where in the instructions does it say where to use this. Then in the instructions it says to put water and bouillon in with the cabbage. I wasn't sure how much water so I used 1 cup. We enjoyed this but it took a lot longer then 15 minutes to cook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut cabbage into quarters and soak in tap water with a pinch of sugar.
  2. and let set for 10 minute Then drain in a colinder and set aside.
  3. In a deep skillet brown diced onions, when lightly browned add the cabbage to the onions using a wooden spoon to seperate the leaves of the cabbage . Reduce fire to a simmer gentle folding the cabbage into the onions, allowing the cabbage to turn a golden brown. When golden brown add the water and bullion cube, salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar fold in till well dispersed cover with tight lid, reduce the fire to low and allow to simmer for 15 minutes .
  4. My family like to have cornbread with this dish. If you like your cornbread a little spicy add some chopped jelapeno sparingly to the cornbread batter. Just the right touch to this easy to prepare meal.
