Many people associate cabbage with the traditional St. Patrick's Day meal of corned beef and cabbage. However, there are actually different varieties of cabbage, which include green, savoy and red cabbage. Cooked savoy cabbage does not have the sulphur odour of the green cabbage, states the University of Illinois Extension. This cabbage can be roasted and served with any kind of meat from beef to duck.
