Eileen’s Fried Cabbage

Eileen B. – Derby KS

Ingredients:
1 Head Cabbage
5 slices bacon
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Directions:
• Fry the five pieces of bacon in a deep frying pan or dutch
	oven on top of the stove. You need a deep pan, with a lid.
• Core and chop the head of cabbage.
• Your bacon may be crispy by now - remove from pan
	and drain.
• Turn the heat down to simmer or just above.
• Put all the cabbage in the pot and toss to spread the
	bacon fat around a bit.
• Put the lid on for 10 minutes.
• About every 10 to 15 minutes Toss the cabbage again, but
	put the lid back on between tossing sessions.
• It takes about 45 minutes to cook cabbage to fork tender.
• Now break up the bacon over the top, put the lid back on
	and cook another 5 to 10 minutes.
• Your cabbage at this point will have cooked down about
	1/4 to 1/3 in volume.  This is OK.
• Some of your cabbage may be a little browned, this is OK too.

For all the steps above this is a very easy and simple way to
cook cabbage as a lovely side dish.  All the vitamins stay in
where as with boiling or steaming, they flush into the water.

    OH my GOSH! I forgot to add this…
    For a more “heart healthy” variation – substitute the bacon grease (how sad) with 1 to 2 tablespoons Olive Oil.
