Ok..I am a good ol country gal so here's how to cook a southern head of cabbage. Cut or cabbage into 4 chunks, put them in a medium pot. Cover with water just to the top of the cabbage. ADD 1/2 cup vegetable oil,3-4 slices of good bacon (NOT TURKEY BACON) just regular bacon salt and pepper. Cover with a lid but, leave a little opening between the pot.and lid. Cook on low for 2-3 hours. Should be tender on the outside leaves but a little more firm on the inside. But its done...this is how my grand mother made it and we all still make it this way. Its really good. Don't add all those other seasonings to it. The oil,bacon,salt and pepper are all u need.. I'm cooking 1 tonight for dinner. Good luck....

I usually cook my cabbage in 2 cups of chicken broth and add 1pkg of Lipton Onion soup mix. And a 1 garlic clove diced mm good

Easy, but could use more guidance on seasoning for those not familiar with what herbs and spices to use with cabbage. It turned out kinda bland so I'd like to know what I should add to it next time.

The cabbage turns out great. The only downside is that your house smells like cooked cabbage. Might do it on high next time to speed up the process. Will also try the ham hock suggestion.
