Southern Fried Cabbage – Simple, tasty, flavored with garlic and bacon – Ready in no time. Fried cabbage is actually a mixture of sautéing, and/or stewing, being cooked low and simmered in its own juices, rather than fried quickly. It is really not “Fried” so don’t be alarmed!

Fried Cabbage is one of those things that we’ve been making for years, but also one of those things that I never thought to put on the blog!
I just love cabbage any way, but this is probably one of my favorite ways to make it. Like with my Squash and Onions a few weeks ago, I made this and then proceeded to eat about half of it all by myself after I shot these images. I suppose there are worse things to eat half of.

Ingredients :

5-6 strips of bacon
1 head cabbage, sliced
1 onion, diced
¼ cup chicken broth (I use low sodium broth)
1 tsp vinegar (optional)
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper

Directions :

In large skillet, (I use cast iron) fry the bacon until crispy, remove to a paper towel to drain
Place chopped cabbage and onion in the skillet with the bacon fat over medium heat and cook until it begins to wilt a bit
Crumble the bacon and add to the pan
Add in the chicken stock,vinegar, salt and pepper, cover and allow it to simmer for 10 minutes
Serve hot (try adding some diced apples, sliced sausage, noodles, or what ever tickles your fancy)
