Chop cabbage into large chunks and steam until clear in color; drain.
In same pan melt butter, sauté onions, add seasonings and cabbage.
Measure flour in to a deep bowl. Make well in middle of flour. Add eggs and seasoning. Start beating eggs and gradually mix flour into eggs; will make a stiff dough. If too dry add a little milk. Drop about 1/4 tsp into boiling water. Best if spoon dipped into hot water after each dumpling - they will come off the spoon easier. Dumplings are done when they float to the top.
Remove dumplings directly to cabbage mixture, combine and enjoy.
I have successfully served in a crock pot on low setting for parties.
