Braised Cabbage with Bacon

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Seriously, you can never go wrong with bacon, especially when you pair it with cabbage. This is delicious as well as easy. This is a side dish to let braise while you get the rest of the dinner done!

Braised Cabbage with Bacon
adapted from:  our two favorite foods, in our kitchen!
serves 6 or more
45-60 minutes for braising

1 medium-size head of cabbage
6 - 8 slices bacon, chopped
garlic salt

Cut bacon into strips (scissors work great for this task), or smaller if desired. Brown in a dutch oven or cast-iron skillet.

Remove outside leaves from cabbage, core, and slice into 1/4 inch slices.

Lesson learned, use a dutch oven for braising!

When bacon is brown, remove excess drippings if your bacon is really fatty. Add cabbage, sprinkle with garlic salt. Toss until everything is combined. Reduce heat, cover and let cook 15-20 minutes. Gently bring the cooked cabbage up from the bottom, letting the raw cabbage from on top fall. Cover again and let cook. Repeat until cabbage is tender, soft and ready for serving, 45-60 minutes.

Nothing left, but the cleanup!

  1. I love braised cabbage, but often go with red -- using caraway, apples, and a little vinegar. This version sounds heavenly.

  2. My son loves cabbage, I think he would enjoy this dish.

  3. Doesn't get much better. This is one of our house favorites. I don't use garlic salt but I do finish it with freshly ground black pepper. Thanks, Rocquie

  4. I have not ever had cabbage with bacon. I'm not much of a cabbage lover, but I do like it in salad. Bet this smells good.

  5. As luck would have it in 2 days time Food on Friday is doing bacon, I hope you bring this over. Cheers from Carole's Chatter
