Green Cabbage & Bacon

Make this simple poor people’s dish as the perfect accompaniment to your protein. We made this dish with our famous Pork Ribs tonight for my parents that just arrived from Europe and they LOVED dinner. Thanks Paul at Meat Shop AZ for such amazing pork ribs – you know how to cut them right.

Here is our very easy cabbage recipe that serves 4 – 6 hungry folks:

  • 2 large heads of white/green cabbage, washed. sliced and quartered
  • 1 very large onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 2 strong pinches of sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 strip s of bacon

Fry up 6 strips of bacon until golden crispy, then add onions and caraway seed, salt and pepper. When onions and spices are glossy, add cabbage and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until  semi-firm, but glossy – serve and totally enjoy this amazing side dish.

    This is one of my favorite go to veggie side dishes when I am looking for something easy that my picky southern husband will eat. We had a ton of cabbage in our CSA this year, so that helped. I have never tried it with caraway seeds though, will try those on the next round!


    1. That’s awesome Erin! LOL, I am so glad that he likes it. The caraway seed is also a great preventor of bloating. I grew up with this spice so I love it in certain veggies and pork dishes specifically. Have a great week. Jo

    I made this recipe this evening & it’s a winner. Definitely will be trying this again. Not sure what flavors I’m picking – carraway & cabbage are both somewhat new to me, but loving how they work together.


    1. Hi Scott, spices – simple spices rock. Happy cooking. We love that you are trying new spice combinations. 🙂 Jo n Henry
