I'm from Indiana, so when i found this recipie to be very similar to the one my grandmother used to make, i was so excited! It was so good! One suggestion-make sure that when you're cooking the cabbage to wait untill at least some of it is brown or nearly black to take it off the heat because this is when the cabbage has the most flavor. Also, try to use a cast iron skillet if you have one, that's how it's traditionally made.
I was very disapointed with the results of this recipe. My family loves cabbage, but this was nothing like I hoped. Very greesey! I gave 2 stars because I like the ingredients, and I'm hoping to play around with it in the future to make better.
I liked this, but the grease was a little much. Once I remade it with alterations it was great. Try, instead of cooking raw bacon, starting with the butter and either cooked bacon pieces (but still soft) or packaged bacon bits (the kind that is real bacon and still chewy). This provides enough grease for the flavor, without all of the calories. If you end up short on liquid, just add olive oil.
I found no grease problem with this recipe. [Cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, drain, crumble, set aside. Combine butter, cabbage, celery, green pepper, salt, pepper and onions. Cover, steam 15-20 minutes. Stir in crisp bacon just before serving.]
I omitted the mushrooms and did not add any liquid (other than what was clinging to the vegetables). I only add about one tablespoon of butter. I Used about 1/2 cup of celery and one yellow, not green bell pepper. This should be glistening - if that seems greasy to you, then don't book with bacon grease! This is down-home cooking for sure. The best thing to do is fryt he bacon up whole, then save it to crumble over the cabbage at the end of cooking. This recipe needs a lot of salt, crushed red pepper, and maybe a dash of vinegar to make it sing.
Maybe it is just because I am from Indiana but, this is the best Fried Cabbage I have ever eaten in my life. I would give it ten stars.**********
I made this for my family and me and my husband loved it. I added garlic to the recipe to add a little extra flavor. Great recipe.
This recipe is very flavorful, but I did make some changes. I didn't have the celery and canned mushrooms, so I used about 6 ounces of chicken broth along with the remaining ingredients. It reminded me of ham and cabbage!!!!! Excellent!!!!!!!!
