As I said in my recent cabbage recipe post (I believe, the cabbage soup post), I am slowing getting my family to like cabbage. Slowly, but surely. It does seem to be working. This spicy cabbage recipe seemed to really be a hit with everyone and I really appreciated that because not only is it cabbage...but potatoes and kielbasa too! I love homemade mashed potatoes and I now LOVE kielbasa (I used to not). So it's got all the makings of a delicious meal for me. It's really just a plus that everyone else enjoyed it too. Now, I will say that calling it spicy was a stretch as it is. If you had asked me 10 years ago, I probably would have agreed and said there was some heat, but I think my tastebuds would say it was very mild. I definitely will add hot sauce to taste next time to make it a little bit spicier. Definitely start out with the recipe's amount of cayenne and hot sauce and then adjust it to your liking! :)

I love this Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup that is made entirely in the crockpot - it's so good! For another take on fried cabbage, this Southern Fried Cabbage with Sausage from Food dot com looks incredible!
