My family loves this fried cabbage recipe. I serve it with homemade cornbread. Make a lot, because there will not be any left.

I changed this a bit by adding a whole lb of bacon (yum) and 1/2 large onion to 1/2 head of chopped cabbage. Also added a capsule of Turmeric Curcumin (1000 mg) instead of paprica. Can sprinkle paprica on top when serving. Read More
