Smothered Cabbage

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

This is a great twist on traditional fried or smothered cabbage - taken from the Tony's Seafood of Louisiana website (who are quoting a Mulate's recipe). How can we go wrong? YUMMO!! My DH brought me a tee back from Mulate's when he was down helping recovery efforts after Hurricane Katrina - needless to say we love the region and the food - and now I can say I "perk" up a bit when I see Mulate's anywhere. I can't wait to get down there myself just to sample my way around the region! How DO I get one of those traveling shows myself? ;)--

Excellent cabbage and kielbasa recipe, full of home town flavor. Made as written with a couple of changes, I omitted the cayenne pepper, used a red onion and added sliced Baby Bella mushrooms, once everything was sauteed I poured in a bottle of Guinness Extra Stout and let simmer for 40 minutes covered and the final 10 minutes uncovered, which produced a nice sauce and a great meal. Thanks. Made for Mommy Diva's Cook-A-Thon 2012 ~ Fight Like a Girl!
