"Very tender, very flavorful vegetable side. Based on this recipe, seems like Army cooks don't think much of cabbage."

  2. Whisk remaining 1/4 cup water and flour together in a small bowl and gradually add to cabbage mixture. Continue to simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.

It was good. I cooked it for maybe 2 hours and it still was tender.

Taste like the cabbage I fell in love with as a youth. The cabbage was tender and sweet (where'd that come from?) I used maple bacon and just loved this recipe.

Cooked about four hours, used just a bit less bacon. Very tasty! Reminded me of when my Mom cooked cabbage many years ago.

Really bad took to long and tasted manly of viniger

Yummy. Takes time but worth the effort!
