Great on it's own or as an accompaniment to my Soda Bread recipe. Looking for some protein? You can add some ground beef to this recipe (my mom often did, although I prefer it without). Watch me make it here.

Spicy Stewed Cabbage

  2. Heat oil, on medium-high heat, in a large skillet or pot.

Some people add ground beef to this cabbage. Add the meat at the beginning when you are browning the onions.
