Get a taste of Indiana with this cabbage recipe. It is especially great served with ham or pork. You can omit the mushrooms if you are not a mushroom fan!

I'm from Indiana so when i found this recipie to be very similar to the one my grandmother used to make i was so excited! It was so good! One suggestion-make sure that when you're cooking the cabbage to wait untill at least some of it is brown or nearly black to take it off the heat because this is when the cabbage has the most flavor. Also try to use a cast iron skillet if you have one that's how it's traditionally made.

I liked this but the grease was a little much. Once I remade it with alterations it was great. Try instead of cooking raw bacon starting with the butter and either cooked bacon pieces (but still soft) or packaged bacon bits (the kind that is real bacon and still chewy). This provides enough grease for the flavor without all of the calories. If you end up short on liquid just add olive oil.

I found no grease problem with this recipe. Cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp drain crumble set aside. Combine butter cabbage celery green pepper salt pepper and onions. Cover steam 15-20 minutes. Stir in crisp bacon just before serving.

I omitted the mushrooms and did not add any liquid (other than what was clinging to the vegetables). I only add about one tablespoon of butter. I Used about 1/2 cup of celery and one yellow not green bell pepper. This should be glistening - if that seems greasy to you then don't book with bacon grease! This is down-home cooking for sure. The best thing to do is fryt he bacon up whole then save it to crumble over the cabbage at the end of cooking. This recipe needs a lot of salt crushed red pepper and maybe a dash of vinegar to make it sing.

Maybe it is just because I am from Indiana but this is the best Fried Cabbage I have ever eaten in my life. I would give it ten stars.

This recipe is very flavorful but I did make some changes. I didn't have the celery and canned mushrooms so I used about 6 ounces of chicken broth along with the remaining ingredients. It reminded me of ham and cabbage!!!!! Excellent!!!!!!!!

I made this for my family and me and my husband loved it. I added garlic to the recipe to add a little extra flavor. Great recipe.

Very nice dish with a lot more going on than the sauteed cabbage with bacon and garlic I'm accustomed to making. I added garlic to this as well and helped the mixture simmer along with a little chicken broth. I also used fresh rather than canned mushrooms. This is both interesting and flavorful. I suggest using the recipe as a guide rather than following the measurements precisely (using more or less bacon than called for comes to mind for example) - cooking "to taste" is always a good idea in my book.
