I have made this several times..I add 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, 8 ounces of Apple juice and 2 TBSP lite Soy Sauce. Cook as directed. Towards the end I add 6 ounces white wine, Cook 5 minutes more. Stir in 1 TBSP more butter as a seasoning ( this part kicks it ). Serve. Everyone loves this dish. It's economical and relatively healthy :)
This dish really is speedy, especially if you use 2 packages of Trader Joe's shredded green cabbage instead of slicing your own. The flavor is very good, evoking an Old World flair. I used Gala apples, which held their shape well, and served it with pan grilled precooked bratwurst and leftover potatoes for a sort of German themed supper. My husband wanted to make a frozen pizza, but I said I could pull this delicious dinner together faster, and I did. The leftovers are great over brown rice, whole wheat couscous or white beans for a healthy, satisfying vegetarian lunch.
