This was something different from the usual cabbage. This combo of a fruit and vegetable recipe worked well. I used 2 cups of cabbage and 1/3 cup of vinegar. Also substituted the butter with cooking oil. Microwaved it on HIGH for 7 minutes, the cabbage was slightly crunchy! I loved that, had it for lunch:)

This was yummy! My only issue was how juicy it became after cooking. I will most likely experiment with the amounts of butter and vinegar the next time a make this recipe to see if less is better.
