serves 6-8. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
You can chop the cabbage as you prefer, rough chop, fine chop or even shredded. You can use prepared coleslaw mix, but you may want to remove the carrots and red cabbage.
I know the portions says 6-8 for a large head of cabbage. Keep in mind that cabbages does cook down in volume. And we always went back for seconds and thirds.
I use Crisco shortening. If you want a tangier flavor, try cider vinegar or white wine vinegar. Enjoy!
