Very nice. Based on previous reviews, I used only 2 granny smith apples and threw in a chopped onion as well as used about 1/2 the butter. Really enjoyed it, thanks!

This was easy. There was nothing wrong with this I just didn't like the taste too much apple for me.

I went the sausage/egg noodle main dish route, using "banger" style English sausage, which seems to match the cabbage and apples well. It all could use a bit more flavor though. Perhaps cooking the sausage first in the same pan and using some of the fat in place of some of the butter would give it more flavor.

I love cabbage more than any vegetable and this is the best recipe ever. (Without the apples of course) Not an apple fan.

I found this recipe to be easy and very tasty. Even my 3 year old ate it! I originally worried about the taste of vinegar but it boils down, and the brown sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness. This is one of my favorite recipes now.

I used this recipe the first time I fried cabbage, and it's very simple and easy. And best of all the whole family liked it!

This went well with us today. I used lemon juice instead of vinegar and left out the apples by choice.

Very good tasting...but the apples make the difference! I used a tart apple...Granny Smith...and it really offset the more milder taste of the cabbage. A big hit!
