Rachel's notes for this recipe:
I grew up on my moms fried cabbage. I loved it even as a kid. To enhance the recipe, I added potatoes and a few spices.

Remove outside leaves from cabbage and discard. Rinse head of cabbage in cold water. Remove whole leaves from cabbage. Discard the core. wash, peel, and slice potatoes.

If its dry add more oil. Cook additional 10 mins, or until veggies are tender.

Oh my, this sounds so good. I love cabbage. I've made fried cabbage before, but never thought to put potatoes in with it. Gotta try it. Maybe even toss in a little onion and bacon. YYUUMMM. Thanks Rachel..

Just a hint: I never discard the core. I cut it up into smaller pieces and add it to the recipe--yummy! It's my favorite part of the cabbage.
I've fried cabbage with noodles, and I've added it to mashed potatoes (Irish Colcannon), but this looks great. Will definitely try it!

When ever my hubby knows we're having cabbage, he stands right next to me waiting for the core. He just loves to eat it raw. However, he really doesn't care much for coleslaw. Go figure. LOL

Not only do I like the core of the cabbage, I also love the "heart" of the celery bunch.
