Delicious tasty vegetable dish. My family have been converted to liking cabbage and ask me to make it all the time - 03 Nov 2014


Absolutely delicious. I admit to eating the scraps in the pan it was so good! - 21 Mar 2013


Great side dish. My partner says he doesn't like most vegetables, but ate and enjoyed this. Would be a great way to use up leftover veg from a Sunday roast! - 17 Sep 2016
