This is a great way to get your family to eat veggies. My son dislikes boiled cabbage, but agrees this is a tasty dish.

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.

I would suggest that when starting to cook this you use two separate frying pans. Caramelize the cabbage,onions, and pepper in a larger pot using olive oil and slowly saute until transparent. This will bring out the natural sweetness of the cabbage. In another frying pan cook the bacon to desired doneness. Drain off the fat before adding bacon to the sauted vegetables. Add just enough bacon drippings to flavor the dish. Sprinkle with a little Beau Monde Seasoning and serve. Full of flavor without the fat. Read More

Oh my goodness, this is delicious! I had a small portion of cabbage to use up, so I just adjusted the amounts of all the ingredients. The directions didn't say whether to cover or not, so I put the lid on the pan to help steam the cabbage. This was a nice side to go with 'Grilled Pepper Steak Salad' from AR. Contented Home-maker, this was an excellent recipe, that I will be using again. Read More

This is very good. Amazing how much better cabbage tastes if it's sautéed rather than boiled. One can add in shredded onions and sweet peppers as desired, a little bit of chopped fresh hot pepper or garlic, whatever seems to fit and the family or guests like. I would do a bit of bacon in the microwave until crisp and then crumble it over the dish last thing. It gives a nice finish and leaves out the a lories and fat in a whole pound of bacon. Read More

I made it according to the recipe I added salt pepper and garlic powder. I cooked the bacon first and removed. Next I cooked the onion and bell pepper in the bacon drippings for about five minutes. I added the cabbage with bacon pieces and cooked all together. Right at the end I added a splash of lemon juice to add acid. It turned out delicious. It was greasy so next time I would remove the bacon drippings and cook in olive oil. Maybe add back some bacon grease for flavor. Read More

Really good and husband thought so too. Came home late with little time before dinner and less energy. I only used a half pound of bacon and half of a large onion. Husband said you'll have to keep that recipe. He rarely says that! Read More
