    I thought this would be a hit with our family and it didn’t disappoint. I cooked on high because I put it on late. I also browned shortcut bacon and added the lot at the beginning instead of adding half the bacon as stated in recipe. It was a perfect side to have with Chicken with Camembert sauce. I could have just eaten the whole dish myself

  2. I’ve been meaning to try this one for ages as I do love cabbage (and everyone loves bacon right lol) but I’ve only EVER had cabbage just cooked in milk and butter as my mum always made it, so I was keen to try something else 🙂
    I had a few alterations to the recipe only by necessity of what I had on hand (only green cabbage, no sprouts and I used shallots instead of eschalots)
    I also was a little short on time so I doubled the veg stock and cooked it on high for around 4hrs in my 3.5L instead of on low
    It was soooo good!
    I loved it and will definitely do cabbage in this way more in future (and next time I’ll have the ingredients and time to also do it as it’s intended to be done)
    Thanks Felicity for a great side dish to our dinner!

  3. Oh I’m going to try this tonight. Like Paulene, I only have cabbage on hand so will only use that. I don’t have shallots but will cook onion and maybe some garlic with it. I don’t have vegetable stock but so have vegeta so will use that and will be cooking on high . Hopefully it turns out good

    Didn’t look like the photo but tasted ok.
    Short on time too started out on high in 6ltr sc, turned down to low as was cooking too quick.
    I also added Brussel sprouts and beans hour before the end. Next time I might try and cram into 1.5 ltr or maybe I need a 3ltr!!
