Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon

12:36 AM
Fried Cabbage with Bacon has been a favorite around our house for many years. I was trying to think of what I could serve with my Stuffed Round Steak and mashed potatoes, and I remembered that I had a head of cabbage in my refrigerator.

It is a simple and flavorful side dish that can be made so quick.   It has a lot of water in it, so I try not to add to much water to the pan.  It is easy to overcook the cabbage, so I cook it just before it is done and turn the heat off and put the lid on it to keep it fresh and tender but not soggy.  

Fried Cabbage with Bacon

    4 slices bacon, sliced thinly 
    1 large cabbage
    1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced
    1/4 cup water (or chicken stock)
    1/2 cup butter, sliced
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
Cook the bacon until crisp, over medium heat in a large skillet, about 4 minutes.

Cut the cabbage in half and, with the cut-side down, slice it as coarsely as possible around the core. Discard the core.

Add the cabbage and onion, water, butter, salt, and pepper and saute for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender and begins to brighten.

Turn heat off and cover with lid.  Do not over cook. Serve warm.
