Cabbage is on sale everywhere cause of St. Pattys Day and seeing it at every store I've been in this week made me hungry for it. So I bought a little head of it for myself.
This is my dinner tonight:
That's a dessert size plate by the way. Don't want you all thinking I'm gorging myself out on a big ass plate full of the stuff. I like it but come on.
Cabbage with Onions & Bacon
(another thrown together recipe by Lisa)
4 slices of bacon, chopped
1 large onion, sliced thin
1 small head of cabbage, sliced in thin strips
salt, pepper, butter
Chop the bacon and cook it in a heavy pot until it is brown and crispy. Remove from the pan.
At this point I had a little too much bacon grease for my liking so I sopped some of it up with a paper towel and tossed it. If you like lots of bacon grease then by all means leave it in, but your heart will breathe a little easier if you take a smidgen out.
Add the onion and cook until it is just about caramelized. Add in the sliced cabbage. I cover the pan for about 5 minutes to let the cabbage steam a bit, then I remove the cover, throw in about 2 tablespoons of butter and salt & pepper it. Let it get nice and brown, stirring occasionally. Throw the bacon back in right before you serve it.
DELICIOUS!! I love me a plate full of fried cabbage.
Time to go take my gas pills!
