I derived this recipe from Lennie's "Michael Symon's Drunken Cabbage#31824" but made significant changes to the recipe. I used what I had on hand. When I first made it, I didn't have any caraway seeds so I added it to the leftovers the next day. This dish comes out a little sweet but it is tasty. Cooked cabbage can tend to be a little "gassy" but I think the beer neutralizes that. This can be served as a side dish or eaten as a main dish.
- In a large skillet, fry bacon until it is almost crisp.
- Add onion slices and saute until onion is tender.
- Do not drain the bacon grease unless there is too much.
- Add cabbage and stir until cabbage is well coated with the bacon mixture.
- Pour beer into a 2 cup measuring cup Add caraway seeds, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper and stir until well mixed.
- Mixture might get foamy.
- Pour over the cabbage in the skillet and mix well with an egg spatula.
- Cover with a lid and simmer until cabbage is tender (about 30 minutes).
Wonderful recipe. It was a little sweet but the caraway seed neutralized it for me. Easy to do and tasty. Made for Beverage Tag.
Ah, cabbage! Ah, beer! Super combination. I skipped the caraway (not a fan), used a pilsner style beer (next time I think I'll try a darker beer) and added a shake of red pepper to offset the sweet. Absolutely delicious stuff. Made for the 'ZWT IV Bier ist Nahrung Challenge for the Daffy Daffodils. Thanks AuntWoofWoof!
Fabulous! I made this to serve with braised pork steaks with cider and creme fraiche for B and B guests - they loved it! Made it EXACTLY as posted - NO changes are necessary IMHO! A keeper - I can see me making this many times again! Thanks Auntie! FT:-) Made for ZWT 4.
