pork and cabbage is the marriage from heaven.
corned brisket and cabbage is a close second for me.

I am making it as we speak - 4 wedges or round slices of cabbage with salt, pepper and bacon bits and brush with bacon fat. I usually saute in pan with little oil and then add a little chicken stock. After cooked I sprinkle with tobasco pepper sauce. Yum!

I like to saute mine with a bit of curry powder and garlic.

Slice 1/4 head of cabbage thin (yields quite a lot!). Dice up 2-3 cloves garlic. Heat pan and add coconut oil (about a TB). Toss in the garlic until just fragrant and not brown. Add in cabbage and stir till coated in oil. Add like 2 TB of stock or water. Add lid and let it steam for 3-4 minutes. Remove lid, cook till most of liquid is gone. Add in a teaspoon of curry powder, salt, black pepper and if you like, red pepper flakes. Stir till well coated and most of the liquid is gone. Serve!

Mmmm!

One of my favorite things to do with cabbage is to make sauerkraut. Home fermented kraut is so different from the canned kind I was used to, it's crispy, and the ingredients are just cabbage and salt. Granted, it does take a little time to ferment, but the end results and knowing what is in it is worth it. The recipe I use is primal, from Mark's Daily Apple. (can just google MDA sauerkraut and find it).

I prepare my own food, its very simple especially as I dont have developed cooking skills.
Anyway for a start ,the cabbage types that I use are not all that low in carbs. Napa cabbage has 3 per 100 grams and red cabbage 3.7 per 100.

I cut up say 100 grams of the cabbage , microwave it for a couple of mins [ about 2.5] remove from oven and dump onto it 25 grams of good olive oil and then add a poached egg on the top.

A sprinkle of salt and pepper and thats it. This way I avoid heating the cabbage with the olive oil, as it can cause me to get indigestion.

Romanie lettuce @ 1.2 carbs /100 grams can also be used in the same way but obviously with a much shorter blitzing time.

Also good for me because I dont need too many pots and pans, and the one who must be obeyed likes the kitchen spick and span when later she makes her entrance.

I generally don't like cabbage at all, but that actually sounds pretty good. I'll have to give it a try.

Salim - many people say they don't like cabbage, but it's more likely that they never had it properly prepared.

Cabbage in its many forms is my mainstay vegetable and we have it at least twice a week. Tonight is sauteed cabbage and sausage (cabbage sauteed with only a little water in the drippings from cooking the sausage.)

Yeah, that's pretty much WHY I don't like it!
