"I can only attempt to spell the real name of this dish; Cabushka or something like that! My mother's father was from Czechoslovakia, and he has three sisters who are excellent cooks. I have learned to cook this dish quite happily. At our last reunion, there were three separate bowls with different versions of this same dish; they were all scraped clean!"

1 large head
chopped green bell pepper
I made this for a homesick Czech friend, and he swears it tastes just like home. However, I added extra celery (you want to use mature, flavorful outer celery stalks, not the soft inside ones), extra green pepper and extra onion.
Didn't care for this at all. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I'm sure it was my fault. I guess I really overcooked the cabbage because it was soft and didn't use real bacon. I subbed turkey bacon cooked in the microwave. Didn't have celery so had to leave that out and used cider vinegar instead. I put a little sugar in it, but didn't help any. I guess I can't complain because I didn't follow the recipe at all. Oh well, guess I'd better learn a lesson from this one. Thanks anyway.
This was a wonderful cabbage dish! I did not blanch the cabbage first; i simply added it to the skillet with the other vegetables and cooked it until it was wilted. i also omitted the tbsp of oil, as i thought the bacon grease was plenty. I did not have white vinegar, so I used cider vinegar, and it worked out fine. Yum!
I had to make this dish because my husband absolutely loves cabbage. He literally could not stop eating it! The only change I made was to add more vinegar to give it more of a tangy flavor.
We like cabbage in general, but this was especially delicious. It is my favorite kind of cooking--simple, fast, with lots of flavor. I subbed mushrooms for the celery, red pepper for the green pepper, cider vinegar for the white vinegar (those are what I had on hand and my general preferences anyway). I took a bit of a short cut with the preparation and just threw all the veggies in the pan to saute together without cooking the cabbage first (okay, I'm lazy). My husband and I practically licked the bowl clean. Thanks for sharing a fabulous recipe.
I just loved it because it tasted like the inside of an egg roll, but without the greasy egg roll flavor.
Great. Used all ingredients called for except for the oil - I poured off some of the bacon fat - left enough to use without adding oil - wanted bacon flavor. I also just ended up cooking the cabbage with the veggies at the end. I added the vinegar as soon as I put the veggies in the skillet to scrap up the bacon bits at the bottom of the skillet. I also added a teaspoon of sugar. It is wonderful the next day too. Love it cold. Thanks submitter.
Outstanding! Very fresh-tasting, and flavorful; we both loved it. Only thing I did differently was to skip step 1; mostly because I'm lazy. :) Still, all turned out well! Thanks for the keeper.
