"This cabbage is sauteed with onion and jalapeno, and gets an added kick from a pinch of cayenne pepper. A little spicy , but works well with any Southern meal!" — ChiliTex

1 small head
cabbage, thinly sliced
corn bread mix
fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and julienned
salt and pepper to taste
Making this, I was unsure about it but it was delicious enough for me to get a heaping 2nds. The corn bread mix gave the dish a nice flavor and texture to to it! Good job!
I followed recipe exactly. The corn bread mixture intrigued me but I was skeptical. I turned out to be right. First of all, the amount of bacon fat was not enough to cook all that cabbage (which was a tiny head) - I should have stopped right there and started to make changes - but I didn't. The cabbage starting sticking to the bottom of the pan because there wasn't enough fat and the cabbage was weighed down by the corn bread mixture (which was not a lot of corn bread mixture for the small cabbage - thank goodness). I finally had to intervene and add some oil - I should have added butter. Anyway, if I ever cooked this again, which I doubt, I would forget the corn bread mix and just add the cayenne pepper. I will continue to look for more ways to cook cabbage, but anyone looking at this recipe might try "Indiana-Style Fried Cabbage" which is on this site. We loved it - it has been reviewed by many. Living in the East and never tasting Indiana or Texas Cabbage - my vote is for Indiana. P.S. - Not only were there leftovers - the vote was to deep six the leftovers. That didn't happen when I served the Indiana style.
My husband, newphew and his wife feasted on this recipe. I added mild cheddar cheese to it. will make again everyone thought it was delicious.
I modified this recipe slightly--using about half of the ingredients. Quite tasty and hot!
I found this fried cabbage recipe to be extremely good. It's the best I ever tasted. This is a recipe Ican assure you that your whole family will enjoy.
VERY GOOD!My husband asked me to make this twice within 4 days!Good Job, TEX!
Awesome!!! Cabbage is not something I would normally make, but my mom gave me some from her garden so I tried this and my husband and I LOVED IT.
I really enjoyed this recipe. I made this for my roommate (female) and one of our friends (male) and it was a success with both. I really enjoy the spicy side of it. The corbread mix was a great idea as well.
