Cabbage and Bacon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JustJanS

Something I've been making for years. If you don't like carraway seeds, use something else-lemon thyme would be good.

Sorry, I really didn't care for this dish. We don't usually use vinegar in cabbage and it really stood out in the dish, unpleasantly so. I left out the caraway seeds and used creole seasoning but I don't believe that made much of a difference. We also prefer our cabbage in chunks rather than shredded. Made for Aussie Recipe Swap April 2013.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and add the onion and bacon and cook until the onion is softened-about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the cabbage, sugar, vinegar, carraway seeds, stock powder and stir over a medium high heat for a couple of minutes or until the cabbage is coated with oil and starting to wilt.
  3. Add a couple of tablespoons of water, cover and cook over a low heat (watch it doesn't burn) for a further 15 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  4. Stir through the chopped parsley and serve.
