Fried Cabbage


2 Tbsps butter

4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch strips

1 medium onion, diced

3 tsps minced garlic

1/2 head cabbage, cored, quartered, and sliced into 1/2 inch thick slices

salt and pepper

2 tsps Worcestershire sauce


Place the butter and bacon in a large pot and cover, cook on medium-high heat – stirring occasionally.  Cook until bacon is lightly browned and crisp – about 7-8 minutes.  Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate.  Do not wipe out pot!

Add the onion, garlic, and 1/2 tsp salt to the pot.  Stir frequently with a wooden spoon, scraping the browned bits from the bottom as it cooks.  Cook until the onion is very soft – about 8 minutes.

With the heat still at medium-high, add the cabbage, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Stir until the cabbage starts to soften – about 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium-low and cook covered until the cabbage is very tender.  A little bit of texture should remain in the thicker pieces – about 12-15 minutes, stir occasionally.

Uncover the pot and increase the heat to high.  Add the Worcestershire sauce and stir for about 1 minute.  There should be almost no liquid in the pot.  Add more salt and pepper to taste.  Transfer to a serving bowl and top with the reserved bacon bits.
