A simple dish that serves 2 as a main and 6-8 as a side.
4 cups cabbage, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 cup chopped onion
1 or 2 cloves of garlic, minced
6 slices of bacon, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp salt
few grinds of black pepper
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
sprinkle pepper flakes (optional)
Brown bacon in a deep sided frying pan. Add onion and garlic, browning lightly. Deglaze the pan with white wine vinegar.
Add the cabbage and cook on low heat 25-30 minutes. Longer if you want the cabbage more tender, I like it tender crisp. Toss in the seasonings and serve.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
