  • Cut the bacon into tiny bits.
  • Fry it in a big deep frying pan and fish out all the bits after they are crisp.
  • Cut up the onion and garlic and fry them in the bacon fat.
  • When they are brown, pour in the vinegar.
  • Bring it just up to a simmer, add all the cabbage and bacon, toss it as you would a salad, and serve it.
  • The cabbage doesn't cook, but it wilts a little under the hot vinegar.

    My mom grew up in Berlin I was raised on this stuff the only thing we did different was to thinly slice and salt the cabbage to prewilt it get rid of some moisture so it could suck in the dressing otherwise this is spot on

    This is so delicious. I also add a little extra vinegar for more kick, and sometimes will let the cabbage sit in the pot a little longer to wilt a bit more, but if you make this and put it in the fridge, the longer it sits the more wilted it gets, but still with crunch. Just absolutely delicious, as soon as my first batch was gone I had to make another one. Thank you for this!

    Delicious! This is a favorite flavor combination of ours. I would increase the amount of vinegar next time for more 'perk'. This makes a LOT - I used less than half a cabbage & had plenty for 4 of us to have 2nds with some leftover. Thank you for sharing! Made for German Tag Contest 5/12.

    Better than expected.... I'll never serve Sauerkraut again now that I've found this recipe!
