Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon
This humble dish cooks cabbage down until it is tender but still crisp and tops it with crispy bacon - comfort food at it's best.
- ¼ lb Bacon
- ½ large Onion, chopped
- 1 small Green Cabbage, quartered, cored, and sliced thinly
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool; then crumble. Add onions to grease in skillet and sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add cabbage, breaking it apart with your hands as you add it to the skillet. Sauté until cabbage is as tender but still crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. (You can speed things along by covering the skillet.) Add sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Cook until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute more. Remove from heat and add crumbled bacon.
Serve as a side dish on its own or with grain of choice (I loved this with rice). Add an egg to make this a delicious, simple dinner!
