“I love cabbage! And bacon, and onion, so you will see several recipes sort of alike here. It's such a comfort food for me.Sometimes I'll leave out the bacon and add ground beef. Sometimes I'll add some fresh chopped tomato. Cabbage is like a canvass, you can add things and make it an ever-changing recipe. The times are just a guestimate.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut bacon into 1" pieces. Place in large frying pan and cook until ready to turn. Add butter and onion and cook till medium brown.
  2. Add cut cabbage and add bay leaf if using. Add enough water to cover (1/4 cup at a time.).
  3. Cover and allow to steam, stirring often, and adding water as needed to help loosen the brown bits in the pan.
  4. Cook 15-20 minutes (it will cook down quite a bit in volume.) Taste to check for desired tenderness. When almost done, add vinegar, stir,and heat an additional.
