Directions:
Take a large head of cabbage and cut it in half, then cut up the cabbage thicker than for cole slaw, set aside. Put the pork should roast in a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil (like you would soup). Skim off the top and lower heat to a
simmer and cook 'til pork is just about done. Add the cut up cabbage and a little vinegar (so the cabbage doesn't cook too fast or get mushy). Add more vinegar to your taste and a little salt.
Make a roux: Put some crisco shortening in a skillet and add some flour and mix well. Add a little of the liquid off the cabbage, so it doesn't have any lumps. Add roux mix to cabbage mixture and stir well to get out any lumps.

Personal Notes:
Serve boiled potatoes on the side. We usually like them in a big bowl with the cabbage mixture on top (like a soup) YUMMY!
