This is the best fried cabbage recipe I’ve ever had! The flavor is wonderful. I’ve made it twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly, but decided to make a few changes when I made it the second time. I didn’t use the oil for frying the bacon (you really don’t need it) and I took the bacon out of the pan when it was done. It gets a bit soggy after you add the cabbage because of all of the natural moisture coming out of the cabbage as it cooks. I added it back in when the dish was almost done. I also found that it needs more time to cook, but I guess that’s a matter of personal choice as to how crisp you want the cabbage. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE!!!!!
This brings back fond memories of my mama’s kitchen. Cheap, too, especially in the spring. I did make a few changes – left out the oil and used just the bacon drippings. Left out the onions. Removed the bacon before adding the cabbage, then added it back just before I was ready to serve. Also cooked it a little longer, till it was just done – a touch crispy and not a bit limp. I will be using this recipe a lot this spring and summer!
1 lb bacon, finely chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 lbs cabbage, finely diced
