Recipe by momstar

This is how I got my children to like cabbage. It is a simple recipe. It came from an old magazine clipping, do not remember which one. We usually have cornbread on the side with rice and sausage.

Afraid to admit but this may be better than my southern grandmother's cabbage... this is simple, easy, and absolutely delicious! (used chicken broth instead of water, didn't need much salt after this).
