Southern Fried Cabbage

From the December/January 2021 issue of Eat Drink Mississippi

 

12 ounces bacon

1 head cabbage

1 medium sweet onion

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon vinegar (white or apple cider)

1 tablespoon minced garlic, or 2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 tablespoon brown sugar

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional: freshly grated sharp cheddar

Chop and add bacon to a large pot over medium heat. Cook until your desired crispiness. Remove bacon from pot and set aside. 

In the remaining bacon fat, add chopped cabbage and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. 

Chop and add onion to the pot, continuing to cook until onions are translucent. 

Add Worcestershire, vinegar, and brown sugar. Combine all ingredients and let cook for 25 minutes or until cabbage is soft. Stir frequently. 

Once cabbage is cooked, add bacon to the cabbage mixture, reserving some to sprinkle on top of each serving. Top with cheddar if desired and enjoy!
