My family hosts a Saint Patrick's Day party every year and this would be a great addition to our menu! I personally love cabbage but it can be a bit challenging to get some others to eat it. I think this recipe will solve that problem!

I think I will make this for dinner tonight. I have a head of cabbage in my fridge just waiting for inspiration. I am going to substitute the chicken broth for vegetable broth though. I am trying to find recipes that I can use this huge stock pot of vegetable broth that I am making today. Has anybody ever done this? Was the flavor the same?
