My Curry Cabbage Concoction

Sumer and I caught so much cabbage at the Irish Italian Parade in Chalmette, but I had never cooked cabbage before. So I went on a search to find some good recipes. Plain coleslaws led to Asian coleslaws but I wanted something sauteed. So this is what I created. It's so good. I am so excited to find another vegetable recipe to bring for lunch because I need more fruits and veggies in my life. (I am such a nerd) Plus, cabbage is cheap!

i actually eat quite a bit of cabbage, but nothing ever this complicated. a head of cabbage, some beef stock, salt and pepper, and maaaayyyyybe some lean sausage or bacon is a staple for me. lesli and i also discovered something called haluski on food network and i've made that a time or two. that recipe is pretty much the opposite of healthy though. i'll have to give your recipe a whirl sometime.
