Fried Cabbage

Fried cabbage might not photograph well, but it is super yummy.  I found this great recipe for a different use for cabbage as a side.  I always tend to make cole slaw with cabbage.  Never thought to saute it!

1 bag shredded cabbage - or you can shred your own
3-5 slices of bacon
1 onion chopped
2 T butter (I use Earth Balance vegan butter to keep this dairy free)
dash of apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste


Chop up the bacon and cook in a medium sized pan until crispy.

Add in 2 T of whatever type of butter you are using and the chopped onion.  Throw in about 1 T water to deglaze the pan and saute for 4 minutes.

Turn the heat to low and add in the cabbage.  Cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Turn of the heat and add the remaining 2 T of butter and the dash or two of apple cider vinegar.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add more apple cider vinegar to taste as well.

Serve and enjoy!

I make a similar dish without butter but with some sliced onion and sometimes add thinly sliced apples and it goes great with sausages or German hot dogs! I also put in caraway seed! Fleur

Adding the apples sounds yummy!
