  1. Place the bacon in a large pot or Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels and reserve drippings in the pot.
  2. Melt butter in bacon drippings in the pot over medium heat. Stir cabbage, onion, salt, pepper, and sugar into butter and bacon drippings. Cover the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage and onion are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Crumble bacon into cooked cabbage.

I really like cabbage cooked like this. I don't think the butter is needed, there is plenty of bacon drippings to do the job. One note, if you are not adding any water, be careful to not burn...

I added ginger and teriyaki sauce

Followed the receipe & it is GREAT! Takes very little time to make also!!

Love this easy side dish with perogies. Will make it again!
