    No cream....used milk (2/3 the recipe) and added 1/2 stick of salted butter. Added so much flavor to the dish and made the dish creamy and brought forth the cabbage flavor even more

    A bit confused about which part of the cabbage I am to use. Am I to use the outer leaves that I stripped off, or am I to discard those outer leaves and use the remaining head?

    Made it for St. paddies day as a side. Turned out great and fresh. I used half of the cabbage and added a pinch more salt.
