“I derived this recipe from Lennie's "Michael Symon's Drunken Cabbage#31824" but made significant changes to the recipe. I used what I had on hand. When I first made it, I didn't have any caraway seeds so I added it to the leftovers the next day. This dish comes out a little sweet but it is tasty. Cooked cabbage can tend to be a little "gassy" but I think the beer neutralizes that. This can be served as a side dish or eaten as a main dish.”
