This is a bit of work but worth it. Both my parents became diabetic later in life and we had to find ways to adjust recipes for their health needs.

How to Make Sweet and Sour Cabbage (Diabetic Version)

Step-by-Step

  1. Place all the ingredients, except the meat and the cabbage, in a very large pot. Bring to a boil and add the meat. Cook slowly. When meat is almost tender, add all of the cabbage. If more liquid is needed, add a little water.
  2. After the cabbage has cooked for a short time, adjust the seasonings - lemon juice and salt for the sweet and sour flavor. Salt is the trick in achieving the sweet and sour flavor, but be careful -just a little at a time.
  3. Simmer for an additional 45 minutes.
    Remove the bay leaf after removing from the heat.
