Fried Cabbage with Bacon

Fried Cabbage with Bacon

Fried cabbage with bacon is a classic southern soul food dish that is full of flavor and perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas or almost any holiday gathering. With a few ingredients and simple steps this is an ideal recipe to cook to for a company potluck, weeknight dinner or just because. This is an easy vegetable recipe that is low-carb, keto and paleo friendly.

I’ve always loved fried cabbage — when its done right! A standard soul food classic, I’ve always looked forward to this dish at family gatherings and holidays. But all fried cabbage is not created equal! I’ve had it when it has been too watery, cooked to death and not salted accurately, so I had to take matters into my own hands. Although fried cabbage is commonly made with green cabbage, I’ve taken a liking to making it with organic purple cabbage with all of its wonderful phytochemicals, antioxidants and other nutrients, vitamins and minerals.  This recipe recommends using a clean meat source for the bacon, Snake River Farms American Korubata Bacon, as it is some the most delicious bacon I have ever tasted and is also ethically raised ad produced.

I’ve been making this recipe for years and besides a holiday favorite, it is a weekly stable in my household. This recipe for fried cabbage is easy, freezes well and can be made vegan style as well! Fried cabbage is also highly versatile and and be added to salads, sandwiches and dips!

Yield: 6

Fried Cabbage with Bacon

Ingredients

  • 6 slices Snake River Farms Korubata Bacon
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 medium cabbage , purple or green, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 4-6 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Using a dutch oven or a large cast iron skillet fry bacon over high heat until bacon is well done and plenty of bacon grease is in the skillet. Remove bacon and set aside, Place onions in skillet with bacon grease and fry for 1 minute and then add salt and pepper to taste as well as sliced cabbage. Stir well so the bacon grease and onions are well integrated with the cabbage. Continue to cook on medium-high heat stirring often to allow the cabbage to cook evenly, approximately 15-20 minutes, until cabbage softens and begins to turn translucent in color. Remove cabbage from heat and stir in vinegar. Chop bacon into small pieces and stir into cabbage mixture. Service immediately.

Notes

For a vegan or vegetarian version of this recipe replace the bacon grease with 1/4 cup of coconut or avocado oil.

Curried Shrimp Scampi with Sautéed Greens

Curried Shrimp Scampi with Sautéed Greens

Looking for an easy, quick, low-carb, paleo and keto compliant weeknight dinner with a few ingredients? Look no further! This dish is simple, flavorful and nutritious! To all you keto lovers, I think this is the perfect keto shrimp scampi. I mean, who doesn’t love shrimp scampi and with a kick of curry? Like, what’s not to like? The greens are tender, delicious and beautifully compliment the juicy shrimp. An easy weeknight dinner win!

Although its a quick and an easy dish to prepare you can also serve it for fancy occasions — because its SHRIMP… and GREENS! I’m so used to having shrimp with pasta or bread but in my venture to be healthier and limit carbs I find myself substituting greens and not even missing the ‘junky’ carbs! I feel that if I pack in the nutrients my heart and belly don’t desire much more. If you’re a fan of rice or pasta they can easily be added to this dish as well. Steamed rice, rice or wheat noodles would be a delicious additional to this dish as well. Simply steam the rice or boil the noodles of your choice, toss with a bit of olive oil and add them to your plate!

To make this recipe you need a few simple seasonings that you likely already have in your cabinet, an onion, a pound of thawed and cleaned tail-on shrimp, greens of your choice and you’re in! In this recipe I used a combo of organic spinach, chard and kale that I purchased from Costco, however, this would work well with one of the types of greens alone. You can purchase these items from your local farmer’s market as well, in which case the greens will be even fresher than the VERY convenient pre-bagged and pre-washed situation at Costco. Although buying directly from the farmer’s market is the most optimal, pre-washed bagged items can be particularly convenient if you’re pressed for time and your goal is a quick weeknight meal.

Although this recipe is delicious as written with cashew milk it can be substituted for full fat coconut milk, flax seed milk or any milk of your choice.
