I don't think my cabbage was fully steamed; it was too "crisp" for our tastes. There was a little too much bite sometimes, and not enough in others... I don't know why, but the sauce didn't seem too be evenly distributed, even though I did toss it quite well. I skipped the caraway seeds. Thanks for posting.
