No cabbage smell, I swear. This isn't sauerkraut. People in my family who won't walk in the same room because they heard you were cooking cabbage, will sit down and eat with other foods.


  1. Shred cabbage like for slaw.
  2. Soak in cold water until all is shredded.
  3. Take 1 1/2 quart pot, heat up bacon drippings.
  4. Add cabbage, shaking off excess water.
  5. Pot will be full.
  6. Salt and pepper to your taste.
  7. Cover with lid.
  8. Stir a couple of times.
  9. Cook 5-10 minutes.

Easy and filling when watching calories!! I just added a little onion and minced garlic to my drippings before adding cabbage. Excellent!!

A childhood recipe I remember my great aunt used to make. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Its one of my favorites as I was growning up. Love the bacon flavor. Also its a very easy recipe to prepare with having good old country cooking such as Fried chicken and homemade buttermilk biscuits. Thanks again!
