Toasted Cabbage Hungarian-Style

Toasted Cabbage Hungarian-Style created by Rita1652

From an old Sunset International Cookbook. The addition of sugar balances the strong flavor of the cabbage. Tinged with gold, this toasted cabbage makes an excellent accompaniment to chicken, pork, etc. Time consuming but worth the effort.

    Outstanding! Tender sweet caramelized peppery cabbage! I did stir fry this making it come together quicker then the 50 minutes of cooking. Thanks for the yummy eats!

    Came out just a little sweet for me, but everyone I fed it to loved it. Next time I might just cut back on the sugar a bit (I did you plain old white sugar though... just what I had).

    I'm a cabbage-lover and this was absolutely delicious. I did use raw sugar and it really adds a nice flavor when the cabbage is browned. My cabbage was nice and soft and lightly browned after only about 20 minutes. I served it with pork loin. I think next time I will also add a bit of sliced onion. Thanx for sharing!
