1 (12 ounce) package
1 small head
cabbage, cored and finely chopped
ground black pepper to taste
I live in the South and this recipe is a staple in all households. There is nothing better if you like cabbage. Thanks for sharing.
I love this recipe but I put onion and green peppers in the bacon drippings until they soften and then add the cabbage.
This is soooo good! I add about a tsp of brown sugar to help caramelize the cabbage but still retain it's crisp/tender qualities. Brussel sprouts are TDF prepared like this. I half them, steam them for a short time then throw them in the skillet. My future daughter in law says, "I now like brussel sprouts!"
I've been making this for years..I shred the cabbage instead of chopping it cooks more evenly.
BIG TIP: you can also use pre-shredded cabbage from the grocery store, which makes it fast and easy.
I add whatever I have avail. onion red or yellow, celery chopped finely.
I also have prefried bacon in my freezer which is very convenient. And I keep the bacon grease in the refrigerator for seasoning other dishes.
My husband loves this dish. And even if you don't like cabbage, you may want to try this, it just might change your mind on cabbage.
My grandmother used to make this for our Sunday dinners, so when I used this recipe, it sure brought back some pleasant memories! Thanks!
We make this adding onions and noodles boiled in chicken broth, Very good!!!!
My mom was from the south, we also ate this all the time. She later added tomatoes and we ate this over rice. Brings back plenty of memories.
I added 2 tablespoon dijan mustard and 1 tablespoon sugar.
