Cajun Cabbage

We can't seem to get enough cabbage this time of the year. We have had some wonderful cabbage from our garden, so we have opportunities to use the cabbage in many different dishes . Cabbage dishes come from just about every cuisine, Polish, German, Irish and American. In seeking to develop a new cabbage recipe, it just became Cajun Cabbage along the way. My husband and friends just loved it and said they will be asking for this one again real soon, I am exited to share it with you today.

  16. Hello Helen,
    I'm leaving you another comment with a question, hope you don't mind. I'm looking to make this recipe this weekend. I see you use butter in the sauce (in directions you mention to melt the butter) but do not see it as a listed ingredient or how much. Can you please tell me how much better this recipes requires? Can't wait to make this! Thank you again..

    1. Hi Dawn,
      I would use about 1 tablespoon butter for that part of the recipe. I really need to go back and correct that, thanks for bringing it to my attention. This is why all my friends and family wanted me to start writing all my recipes down, which lead to the cookbook and then the blog. I always just cook from my head. I am headed out to make that correction right now. Hope you enjoy the recipe and have a great weekend!
