Pancetta or Side Pork Fried Cabbage

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Barbara Polowetz

This is a low carb meal in itself. You take a bag of cole slaw mix and fry it with pancetta and an onion. That's it!

Ahhhhh, what a great cabbage dish. I didn't feel like running to the store for the pancetta so I used bacon which produced a wonderful flavor for the cabbage. I did add a bit of black prepper also. Great cabbage dish, Barbara Polowetz. Thanks so much for sharing it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces pancetta or 12 lb of side pork, diced
  • 16 ounces coleslaw mix
  • 1 onion, diced


  1. In a large frying pan, brown pancetta or side pork until lightly browned (about 10 mins.) Add onion to pancetta and stir often until onion is sauteed (about another 10 mins.) Add cole slaw mix and stir often (for about another 10 mins.) until cabbage is totally wilted and done.
  2. The cabbage will look like a lot at first but it really cooks down.
  3. Add pepper to taste.
  4. I have used proportionate amount of bacon for this recipe with excellent results.
