My Father originated this recipe and I have perfected it. Everyone I have made this for absolutely loves it and begs for more. My wife likes this more than chocolate.
- 1 head green cabbage, cut into 2 inch by 2 inch slices
- 1 large yellow onion, sliced in 1 inch slices
- 1 lb smoked sausage
- 1 half container bacon bits
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
- 1 tablespoon sugar (or to taste)
- 2 cups white rice
- Mix cabbage, onion, sausage, and bacon bits in a heavy pot.
- Melt the margarine in a saucepan.
- Pour the melted margarine over the ingredients in the pot.
- Cook over medium heat.
- Cover and stir occasionally until cabbage is smothered to your liking.
- Serve over hot white rice and enjoy the explosion of flavors.
This dish was amazing. When I first saw the picture my mouth began to water and I knew I had to make it. I didn't stick to the recipe 100%. Instead of bacon bits I fried up fresh bacon and crumbled it into the mixture and used the bacon fat to add flavor. Amazinggggggggggg! My husband and I almost ate the entire pot in one day!!
I did the recipe ALMOST exact. Instead of adding the melted butter. I threw a butter stick in the pot (with the cabbage, onion and sausage) without being melted. Medium heat. Let it simmer for quite a while. I LOVED IT! I made cornbread biscuits to go with it. Yummilicious!
Excellent! Better than my grandparent's soul food Mississipi/Alabama recipe for smothered cabbage!
I fried the bacon instead of using bacon bits and used the bacon grease instead of margarine. This is my non vegan meal for the weekend and was totally worth it. I also had to add a lot more salt and red pepper flakes.
