The Best Southern Fried Cabbage

  • 8 slices raw bacon
  • 1 1/2 lbs = 680 g white cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon (or to taste) unrefined sea salt or Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or to taste) freshly ground black pepper
  • (optional: 5 drops liquid stevia)
  1. Chop the bacon into tiny pieces.
  2. Add the bacon to a large skillet. Heat over medium-high heat. Cook the bacon, all the time mixing, until crisp.
  3. Set the fried bacon aside and reserve the bacon fat in the skillet.
  4. Lower the heat to minimum. Fry the onion until caramelized, about 5–10 minutes. Don’t let burn. Cover the skillet if the onion is about to burn or to get dry.
  5. When the onion is done, add the cabbage. Increase the heat to medium. Cook for 15 minutes for a crispy result. Increase the cooking time if you prefer softer cabbage, Mix every 5 minutes when cooking.
  6. Once the cabbage is to your liking, remove the skillet from the heat. Add the fried bacon and mix well. Don’t cook.
  7. Season with salt and pepper (and the stevia if you prefer it sweeter) and serve immediately.
