This was "ok", I found it to be a bit ordinary and I love cabbage so new ways to cook it are always welcome. Maybe adding the bacon would help, I'll try that next time!

This is quite simply the best cabbage dish I've ever tried. The rosemary gives the cabbage a wonderful flavour. I've made it with goose fat and with olive oil. It's just as good either way. Goes very well with grilled fish (e.g tuna) and some pureed potatoe.

I have always avoided fried cabbage recipes as too much fiddle but liked the sound of this and tried it. Soooo glad I did - delicious - I could eat it on it's own. I added some garlic with the onion (not shallots).
