Cabbage With Pecans and Bacon

READY IN: 25mins




  • Boil the cabbage for about 10 minutes until soft but still crisp and green. Drain and keep warm. ( I usually use a large slotted spoon or strainer and just go from the pot to my skillet when I am ready for the cabbage).
  • In a large texas skillet; cook the bacon until crisp then remove to a paper towel to drain. Remove most of the bacon grease from the skillet, leaving just enough to saute the garlic.
  • Saute the garlic for about 1 minute then remove it to the paper towel with the bacon. When cool enough to handle, crumble the bacon into little pieces.
  • Add the butter to the hot skillet and allow it to melt then add the cabbage and seasonings. Stir a bit then add back the bacon and garlic plus the pecans.
  • Heat everything thru then serve.
