Good old-fashioned Fried Cabbage! Just like Grandma made!
Serves 6-8 . . . or a bunch – depending on the cabbage size.
Go out to the garden and cut a few smallish heads of cabbage that grew this Spring because you were too lazy to cut the Winter cabbage, and it went to seed. So now you have cabbages growing in your strawberry bed, and your herb garden. Or I suppose you could just go to the store and pick up a big ol’ head of cabbage!
Take a pound or so of sliced bacon, dice it up, and fry it till crisp in a big deep pot.
Wash and cut up your cabbage into bite-sized squares.
Slice up a medium onion too. Set them in your huge Tupperware bowl until your bacon is nice and crispy-brown.
(* Note: Don’t panic because it looks like you have enough cabbage to fill the back of your pick-up truck… it does shrink when cooking and if you DO indeed have enough to fill the back of your pick-up truck, just invite a few friends over for dinner and it’ll be just fine!)
When your bacon is ready, turn the heat to medium-high, then dump your cabbage and onions into the big bacon and bacon grease filled pot and give it a good stir.
Sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper. I also add a few pats of butter – because the bacon grease might not be bad enough for you. I care people! I care!
Stick a lid on your pot and continue cooking over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Cook/stir until your cabbage is crisp-tender, don’t forget to taste it along the way and adjust the salt/pepper if needed.
