One of my favorite comfort foods is Fried Cabbage. Something about it just fills my belly up with all types of warm feelings and can make me feel better even on the gloomiest of days.
I was always a skeptic of cabbage, for some reason I was convinced that I did not like it. Until one day a few years ago my Step Mother made it for dinner and I decided that I did not want to be rude and I ate it anyway. Oh boy! I am glad that I decided to try it
There are many ways to enjoy cabbage, you can cut it into thick slices, grill them or roast them for cabbage steaks. You can Use the leaves as a shell for yummy fillings and make cabbage rolls. Or you can just chop it up and fry it in your favorite skillet.
For this recipe, a cast iron skillet is the best. This is the way that my Step Mother makes it and it is the best by far. If you do not own a cast iron skillet you can also use a regular skillet it will still taste wonderful!
