Don't knock cabbage.  If you're going on a low carb diet, it's a great base for any number of dishes.  Slice it up and fry or grill it and you have a great high fiber replacement for pasta.

I love cabbage.  Boiled with corned beef, made into kimchee, sautéed with bacon, done up Jamaican style, coleslaw, etc, it's pretty dang versatile.

I'm normally not a huge fan of the British (or Irish I guess in this case) preparation of 'throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and boil the fark out of it' but it works rather well in the case of corned beef and cabbage.

Cabbage is good stuff. Except for cole slaw. I hate cole slaw for some reason, and I don't know why really. I like the individual ingredients just fine. Just not when combined into cole slaw.

Cole slaw is for putting on pulled pork sandwiches, and that's it.

Also cabbage with onions is perfect country boy food. It's good food, so if you don't like it, more for me. OM NOM NOM!

Kim chi is also excellent. I doubt you'd get another redneck to disagree if he loved spicy food.

A lot of times prepared cole slaws have way too much mayo and sugar, I'm not at all a fan of those, although they're OK when used as a topping for something instead of being eaten straight.

There's a tradition of 'hot slaw' in the south that's pretty dang tasty though.  You basically render some bacon in a skillet until it's crispy, then remove the bacon, toss in a chopped onion and let it just turn translucent (so that it still has some texture) and then throw in the shredded cabbage.  You basically want to just barely wilt the cabbage, then throw it all in a mixing bowl and toss it with vinegar, a bit of mustard, a few dashes of Tabasco or a Louisiana-style hot sauce, a bit of celery seed, and if you like a tablespoon of sugar, and then crumble the bacon on top.

It's more piquant than than sweet and creamy like traditional cole slaw.

Maybe that's where it started but even home made stuff just doesn't taste quite right to me. The hot slaw doesn't sound too bad though.

Mushrooms are goddamn delicious, especially grilled. The only way I'm not fond of them is raw.  I'm trying to use up a bunch of condiments before we move at the end of the year, so last week I had sweet & sour grilled on a skewer. Later tonight I'll be trying Hoisin sauce on grilled portabella caps, just for the hell of it.

Stuffed mushrooms, salisbury steak with creamy mushroom sauce, shrooms sauted in butter and served over regular steak or on a burger, pasta bake with parmesan and shrooms mixed in... mmmmm. And I even stuffed shells once with just cheese and mushrooms because I had too many left and not enough of the other filling. The mushroom ones ended up being more popular than the sausage.

Only heathens ignore the humble mushroom.

You do know that you can make your own at a fraction of the cost of the pre-made stuff right? It's ridiculously simple to do and unless you want to ferment it for a day or two it's ready to eat right away.

Of course you will probably still have to go shopping though...

Indeed. in addition to your normal 'white' mushrooms from the store, I've tried lobster mushrooms, chanterelles, moreles, horn of plenty, hen of the woods, sulphur shelf, and of course shiatake. They were all delicious, and none tasted quite the same as the other. I'd say chanterelle, sulphur shelf, and horn of plenty are my favorites of the wild ones I've tried.

In fact looking at the picture more closely the only person who isn't at least just a little bit scary is woman in the front #1 on her knees and the unarmed Mitt Romney. I see a Texas Chainsaw Massacre Leatherface clone, that guy from the old Letterman Show who is supposed to be dead (so zombie) and... well I could go on but most of them could be a bad guy from any number of 2nd rate horror movies.

It's more an Irish-American dish, than Irish. We eat (side of) bacon and cabbage here, with parsley sauce. I think Irish immigrants to America switched to corned beef because it was cheaper in the USA than in Ireland, and considered better. But if corned beef and cabbage tastes anything like bacon and cabbage, yes, it's faking delicious. Especially with brown (soda) bread and butter.

Yes!  A staple in my house.

Also, fry & crumble sausage (whatever your favorite kind is, italian, spicy, sage, breakfast) with some onion, add shredded cabbage, cook till caramelized.  Top with eggs of your choice, serve with toast/biscuits/cornbread/whatever and enjoy.

Cabbage is one of the best vegetables.  It's forgiving, lasts nearly forever in the fridge, and lends itself to so many great things to eat.

I eat the cores.  Yes, I do.  And I know I'm not the only one.

Try potato cakes, with a small bit of butter on top, if you haven't already - mashed potato mixed with flour , then fried. Very nice.

The only way I'm not fond of them is raw.  I'm trying to use up a bunch of condiments before we move at the end of the year, so last week I had sweet & sour grilled on a skewer. Later tonight I'll be trying Hoisin sauce on grilled portabella caps, just for the hell of it.

Stuffed mushrooms, salisbury steak with creamy mushroom sauce, shrooms sauted in butter and served over regular steak or on a burger, pasta bake with parmesan and shrooms mixed in... mmmmm. And I even stuffed shells once with just cheese and mushrooms because I had too many left and not enough of the other filling. The mushroom ones ended up being more popular than the sausage.

Only heathens ignore the humble mushroom.

Heh, ever read The Debt to Pleasure?  No spoilers, I'll just recommend it very highly.

I have not, but it's now on my wish list.

I can't believe I got sidetracked though; keilbasa/cabbage (or kale) soup is a fall staple at our house, and I LOVE home-made sauerkraut. I'm kind of sad I can't make it this year because of the aforementioned move; we still have some left from last year and the fewer things I have to pack, the better.  I haven't yet mastered corned beef with it but it's a work in progress. Normally I don't like coleslaw, but there's one diner where my dad lives that makes it *just right* and I love theirs; he even got me the recipe and it's so simple I can't figure out how other restaurants fail to live up.

phlegmmo: Your Average Witty Fark User: phlegmmo: I think people's distrust of cabbage is due to its most evil and unholy cousin: Brussel sprouts.

It's a damn shame you've never had good cabbage or Brussels sprouts.

I've had good cabbage.


Sprouts, when done correctly, are AWESOME. You should give them a try, Sam I am. You might like them.

I'd just like to chime in and support brussel sprouts, cut in half, brushed with olive oil and roasted in a pan, then sprinkled with salt and pepper.

They're so good, they made me start eating vegetables for the first time in my three decades

Mushrooms can be tasty ... especially after they've soaked up some bacon grease.

Mushrooms are goddamn delicious, especially grilled.

I hear ya...slaw is one of those deceptively simple dishes that's easy to screw up.  Places I've found that make it right, I make a point of ordering it.
