Can't stand the aroma of cabbage cooking? Add some ginger to it. It cuts out the sharp smell.

To all of the cooks that don't like the smell of cooking cabbage, here is a very good tip I have used for several years. After you have started sauteing the cabbage lay one or two slices of lite bread on the top of the cabbage. Replace the lid. When you stir the cabbage, lift out the lite bread very carefully as it will tear. After you stirred the cabbage to your satisfaction, replace the light bread. This will absorb the odor of cooking cabbage very effectively. I discard the light bread slices by putting them in a disposable sandwich bag.
