Cabbage Stroganoff... No, Really, It's Good!

I had some cabbage left over from making Liz's Asian Balls o' Meat and perused the internet looking for inspiration... and found Cabbage Stroganoff.  I am not kidding you, this stuff is so awesome you will freak.  What a great way to get in your veggies!

You can click here for the recipe on CDKitchen.  I didn't follow it, and used it more as inspiration.  I left out the onions and added garlic and mushrooms.  Mushrooms and garlic make everything better.  Except ice cream.  And fudge.  Eww. 

This is quick and easy, too, in addition to being ultra-yummo.

Melt a knob of butter.  Finely chop the garlic and add it to the butter.  When the garlic begins to brown, add the chopped cabbage, salt, pepper and some beef boullion.  Toss it all around a little to coat the veggies.  (Note to self: buy some low-sodium boullion, the regular was kinda overpowering.)  When the cabbage starts to soften, add the sliced mushrooms and continue tossing and stirring occasionally.  Once the mushrooms are cooked through, remove from the heat and add sour cream and stir.  Maybe add a little more, it makes a nice sauce.

We had this with pork chops and it was a marriage blessed by the gods. 

What's your favorite way to have cabbage?  C'mon, I know you love cabbage!  If you don't already, you will once you try this.

The only way I like cabbage is in cole slaw. I don't like it cooked. I don't even like to *smell* it cooking.

That said, I do have a recipe for sauerkraut cookies that I've been meaning to try. We'll see how firmly my line is drawn in the sand. :)

The recipe looks interesting. I would add some beef to it though and leave it to cook for a couple of hours on low temperature.

Sounds really good actually -- no pork for me though.

Your post has perfect timing!! I was just Google-ing recipes then came to blogland. Ohh, I'm going to try this.

I'm new to the whole cooking-veggies thing. Thanks for the recipe.

And I DID try it last night!

It was really good. I kept half the batch without sour cream before adding it to the rest. Both are very good.

I blogged about it:

sounds really good, I love cabbage! especially stuffed cabbage rolls. However, this might be a fight trying to get my 4 yr. old and hubby to try. They're not cabbage fans : /
