  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Cook and stir bacon, onions, and bell pepper together in a skillet over medium heat until bacon is just starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Add cabbage and cook, stirring frequently, until cabbage is tender and transparent, 20 to 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Try adding diced celery, red or yellow peppers, or grated carrot for color.
  • Reducing the amount of bacon will lower the fat for those watching their calories/cholesterol.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
