I don’t know what it is about Southern Bacon-Fried Cabbage, but like I said, I cannot stop eating it when it’s made! I find myself grabbing a spoon from the drawer to get a taste …. you know, you have to taste test when you’re cooking! Five minutes later, the same thing! The great thing is my family digs this side dish just as much as I do, so there are never any leftovers! Which, I guess depending on how you look at it, that’s a good thing! The only problem is that it means there is less for me … which maybe that’s why I have to “taste-test” it so much?! I have to make sure I get my fair portion!! ?
QuickTip: Some added butter….it makes a fabulous difference!
6 slices bacon, chopped
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large head cabbage, cored and sliced
1 tablespoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
Place the bacon in a large stockpot and cook over medium-high heat until crispy, about 10 minutes. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion caramelizes; about 10 minutes. Immediately stir in the cabbage and continue to cook and stir another 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes more.
