I wasn't sure about this as it was cooking and with the first couple of bites- but it definitely grew on me. We had this with a cut of beef tenderloin and the flavors paired really well. The maple syrup added a great flavor to the cabbage. I halved the recipe, because it was just my boyfriend and myself, but there was still a lot. I cooked it for maybe a third of the cooking time because the cabbage was begining to look like it was about to be mush- you will probably want to watch it carefully and make sure it keeps some crispness- no one wants soggy cabbage goo. But wonderful recipe (as always) Mean Chef- I will be making this again.

My daughter brought me a big red cabbage, and I am glad I tried this recipe with it. I doubled it and I am glad I did...great taste!

This was terrific. I had a red cabbage from my CSA and thought I'd get rid of it with this recipe ... now red cabbage will be in my regular rotation, and this will be the recipe. I think I ended up cooking it for 40 or 45 minutes. I used about 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, and tossed in 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar -- the combination was divine. Thanks so much!
