Southern-Style Cabbage

This is how I got my children to like cabbage. It is a simple recipe. It came from an old magazine clipping, do not remember which one. We usually have cornbread on the side with rice and sausage.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 5-quart dutch oven or 12-inch skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until browned.
  2. Add cabbage, onion, salt; stir to coat cabbage evenly with bacon fat.
  3. Add water and reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender and lightly browned.

Afraid to admit but this may be better than my southern grandmother's cabbage... this is simple, easy, and absolutely delicious! (used chicken broth instead of water, didn't need much salt after this).
