"Great Jamaican-style cabbage. Great with jerk chicken or pork."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

olive oil, or as needed
onion, thinly sliced
chopped green bell pepper
green onion, sliced
whole Scotch bonnet chile pepper
1 T honey subbed for the sugar. At first, I didn't care for the hot and sweet together, but I ended up liking it! Great flavor!
I subbed a habenero pepper for the Scotch bonnet pepper, as I couldn't find one in my local grocery store. The texture was nice, but the flavor was kind of bland. We added Sriracha sauce for an extra kick.
I will put in more black pepper next time, and I also left the diced peppers in the cabbage. I added some butter as well. It went great with the jamaican rice and Jerk chicken, and Cuban black beans.
Because half my family thinks ketchup is too spicy, I had to do this in stages. I prepared it without the Scotch bonnet and the, when the cabbage was almost done, I transferred half to a second pan. As there would not have been time to infuse the cabbage with hot pepper flavor (I used habanero because I couldn't find Scotch bonnet), I seeded the pepper, cut it in quarters, and added them to the second pan. I removed the pepper before serving. I ate the part that had cooked with the habanero, of course, and it was absolutely perfect!
When I lived in South Florida, I would stop by a Jamaican food truck about 2 times per month. This lady made the best goat curry, jerk chicken, roti. I was especially fond of her cabbage salad. I could taste the ginger and asked her if she used any. She said that was the only way she'd make it and that was why hers was the best! If I asked, she'd throw in some extra chopped habanero for me. It was absolutely fantastic! So now when I make Jamaican cabbage salad, I always add ginger and lots of habanero. Too bad, I moved and found out she'd passed away. I don't even remember her name. RIP
I was skeptical looking at the ingredients... But, I substituted 6 packets of Sweet 'N Low for the sugar (equal sweetness according to Sweet 'N Low)... I love heat, so subbed a serrano pepper sans seeds for the bell. And left in the thyme and habanero (same difference as Scotch Bonnet I'm told) but removed seeds and diced into small pieces. No carrots available, but just made this spicier... The combination of Sweet and Heat was awesome :)
I enjoyed it although it was a little too sweet because I did not include enough cabbage. Will definitely make again
Love this cabbage, my husbnd doesnt want it any other way
