This recipe for Southern Style Cabbage is a favorite of my family. This makes a great side dish or just add some of my cornbread and make a meal out of it. I love cabbage just about any way you “fix” it.
4 to 6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp
2 tablespoons bacon drippings
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium sweet green pepper, chopped (can use a combination of both red and green)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, (optional)
1 cup chicken broth
Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan and drain on paper towel. Set bacon aside. Remove excess bacon drippings from pan reserving 2 tablespoons. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into the bacon drippings in your pan. Add chopped onion, peppers, minced garlic, chopped cabbage, salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning and chicken broth to pan. Cook on medium low heat, covered for 15 to 20 minutes until cabbage reaches the consistency of softness you like. Some people like their cabbage kind of crispy while others like it well done. Remove from heat, crumble bacon on top, sprinkle with paprika. Makes about 6 servings. Enjoy!
