OK I admit it- I've never cooked cabbage except raw in cole slaw. I vaguely remember something about how bad it smells when cooking.
I have half a large head left over from making slaw I want to experiment. We don't like really sour or spicy food so I would appreciate a few suggestions.
Many thanks.

I will second the cabbage rolls, but you are going to need whole leafs for that. It is very very good.

You know, when I was a child, my mom would just fry some up in a pan with onions and ham sometimes. Also she would boil it with potatoes and onions. Spices of course.

When I describe it, it just sounds gross. When I was a kid I thought it was gross. I like it now...lol

Oh and a tip for dealing with a whole cabbage, freeze it first and then thaw for the cabbage rolls. You avoid the whole boiling the entire head hassle. You can peel off whole leaves from the defrosted cabbage head perfectly.

Just steam it then dribble melted butter on it

Delicious!

I love cooked cabbage.

And you're right about the smell. It's an acquired scent.

I love it. All the above recipes are good. Keep on mind it will cook down quite a bit--cabbage rolls might be the best way to go since you only have half a head. I like to chop or quarter it & cook it with bacon grease & serve with hot pepper sauce, sorta like cooking any other type of greens.

I also had a half head of cabbage to use up. I found this recipe:comfortable food - cabbage roll casserole recipe.
Much easier than making cabbage rolls. I halved the ingredients, as it makes quite a bit.
