      This is the perfect way to make cabbage in my opinion! I did sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, the second time that I made the cabbage this way. I used to always put the cabbage in with the potatoes and corned beef. While it was of good taste, it certainly was mushy. So you have that problem solved. Now to add the flavor of the cabbage to the pot of corn beef and potatoes, I simply put the cabbage cores into the pot with the meat. Flavor problem solved. If there are any left overs, I chop everything up the next morning and saute all in butter to make a lovely homemade hash, for breakfast.

      This is a wonderful recipe, However I did make a couple of changes. In the steamer water pot, I used a can of chicken broth and added a can of water, I dropped a bay leaf in the liquid mix.
      I wanted to steam cabbage and potatoe's and carrots yet use dill and honey to garnish the carrots. Was the best I have ever made. I did seperate the different veggies into seperate serving dishes tossed each with a bit of butter. I used a tablespoon of fresh dill and a tablespoon of honey on the carrots. Son ask, "is this all you made?" I should have doubled the amount of veggies I made.
      I love all the comments they are very helpful. {Did not use salt, the broth had enough salt to season everthing.}

      I steamed this in the microwave and it took eight minutes. It was so good and sweet tasting without any seasoning. I did add a tad of butter but actually liked it better with nothing.
