How to make cabbage and bacon?

On to the recipe. You can pick what kind of cooking oil/fat of choice you’d like. I save up bacon grease at times, so sometimes I just use my bacon grease, other times I use butter, but you can also you olive oil or coconut oil for a healthier option.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cabbage, sliced or roughly chopped
  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • ½ cup onion
  • 1 tbsp of cooking oil/fat of choice
  • Salt and Pepper, as desired

In a large cooking pan over medium high heat, add chopped bacon and allow to cook for about a minute, stirring occasionally.

Add onions to the pan and let it cook for about another minute, stirring occasionally.

Add cooking oil/fat and cabbage, and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender and begins to brown.
