A nice dish to go with any meat dinner. I like to sprinkle some vinegar over it when I eat it but that's a personal preference & not part of the original recipe. Posted for ZWT Three (The Zaar format is being ornery right now. This calls for 4 oz. bacon but no matter how I phrase it, it won't accept it.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion and bacon in the olive oil in a large pot until the onion is softened and the bacon is cooked through; add the garlic and cook for about another two minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the cabbage to the pot; it will take up a lot of room but will wilt down as it cooks.
  3. Cook until the cabbage is done, stirring frequently.
  4. It will take about ten to twelve minutes; if you want a softer cabbage, cover the pot and let it steam for about an extra five minutes or so.
  5. If desired, a little bit of sugar and vinegar can be added near the end of cooking time.

very good! Not too much different from mine. I usually don't add onion and I usually just use the bacon grease. I like this and will be using this recipe more! Thank you Janet!!! Made for ZWT3 by a Floozie- Remembering Amy!

I followed the directions, except that I cooked it for a longer time. Used a lot of freshly ground salt and pepper. Delicious side dish. Thanks for sharing.

As I like my cabbage very soft I cooked it for a longer time. This is sooooooo good!!! Definitely will be in heavy rotation.
