Reviews about the recipe:

“This was excellent. I served it with ham, potato salad and black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day. I didn’t use all of the onion called for, nor did I use onion powder (didn’t have it). Like other reviewers, I cut the salt back (to 1tsp). Only a small dish left, and I intend to eat that as a snack later!”




3 pork bacon strips thick-cut
1 medium cabbage head about 3 lbs., roughly chopped
1 medium onion diced
1 medium red bell pepper diced
1/3 cup of water
1/4 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 tbsp. hot sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large non-stick skillet, sauté the bacon, bell pepper, and onion over medium heat for 7 minutes.
Add the red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper, and stir well.
Add the water and chopped cabbage to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 20-25 minutes, or until the water evaporates.*
Once the water evaporates, keep frying the cabbage for about 10 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the hot sauce. Serve.
