This is one of my favorite recipes ever! You need to try this Fried Cabbage, friends! All the flavors work so well together, and the best part is that this dish requires minimum ingredients, minimal cleanup, and provides maximum flavor.
WHY THIS IS THE BEST FRIED CABBAGE RECIPE
This Fried Cabbage recipe is going to become your favorite, because:
IT’S SIMPLE. It is made with four components (plus seasonings).
IT’S EASY TO MAKE. You’ll need to chop the veggies roughly and bacon and cook them together. Bacon adds a ton of flavor, and makes it all better! I utilize Jones Dry Aged Bacon since it’s the best one available on the market.
IT’S 1 POT. Virtually no cleanup required.
IT’S SCRUMPTIOUS. I can not say enough about just how tasty this Fried Cabbage is.
HOW TO SELECT CABBAGE
For this recipe, you will need the regular green cabbage that’s sold in virtually every grocery store or supermarket. Select a medium-sized head that feels heavy for its size. The leaves should look crisp and fresh, without defects or cracks.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH FRIED CABBAGE
This dish is lovely on its own, but it is going to pair well with cooked rice, quinoa, couscous, and mashed potatoes.
Use grilled sausage Rather than bacon
Use chicken sausage rather
Add one tablespoon of BBQ Sauce
Use 1 tbsp of tomato pasta
ABOUT THE BACON
You may use any sort of bacon you prefer — regular, turkey, as well as vegan. Just keep in mind that turkey bacon and vegan bacon are not oily enough, so you will have to add extra oil or butter.
