shredded red cabbage
This was a really easy recipe! I was looking for a warm slaw to go with hot corned beef sandwiches and the balsamic vinegar sold me. The only change I made was using fresh onion (1/4 small, chopped) instead of onion powder and one clove garlic, crushed instead of powdered. (I had them laying around, so...!) It was marvelous on the sandwiches - similar to a sauerkraut, but better!
I wanted to like this, but I didn't :( Here at Casa Moi, it means a possible 2 things when someone tastes their food and reaches for the hot sauce. A: They just like hot sauce or B: Something ain't right!. Tonight it was B; husband tasted it, eyeballed it speculatively, hot sauced it, and proceeded to finish his huge serving (not with gusto--but with the grim determination of a man who knows he must eat his vegetables.) So I tasted it, and lacking grim determination, I could not eat mine. The ratio of salt:vegetables is too salty for me, and I guess I don't much enjoy balsamic vinegar either. So I'm giving it a 3, which in my book means: May be fine for some tastes, and cooking times/measurements are not blatantly wrong. Just not our thing I guess! Thank you for the recipe :)
YES! It WAS like an eggroll without the wrapper! So I nuked a few whole cabbage leaves to soften them, then added some chopped boiled shrimp to the cabbage "slaw" and wrapped the mixture in the leaves. Another nuking to heat the whole thing up and it was FABULOUS! Carb-free eggrolls! Whoda think it!
not what i expected. I agree with the egg roll with out the roll. I was expecting much more of a "WOW" factor. I would not make this again but also knowing that we all have different likes. So, keep on sending recipes.
I added a bit of sugar and more balsamic vinegar to give it more of a sweet and sour taste. I needed the extra vinegar as I had a very large head of cabbage.

NOTE FROM THE SUBMITTING COOK: When I'm in a hurry but still want a tasty/something-different/fast side dish, I buy the bag of pre-chopped and washed shredded cabbage, along with a bag of matchstick carrots. I usually don't trust the pre-washed salads but since this is getting heated on the stove I'm more apt to give it a quick rinse then throw it in the skillet. Not the same as doing it by hand but it's great in a time pinch!
Found this when looking for recipes that fit the diet requirements for the 21 day cleanse that my husband and daughter were doing! It was one of their favs, and we will likely continue to make it long after the "diet" is over! Quick, easy, and very tasty :)
