From Regina Newsome – Southern Fried Cabbage & Bacon

INGREDIENTS

  • 4              Slices of bacon, roughly chopped
  • 1              large onion, cut into quarters and peeled into petals
  • 3              cloves garlic, minced
  • 1              large head of cabbage, cored and chopped
  • 2              tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1/2         tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2         tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2         tsp. garlic powder

Cook bacon in a large pot over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon and place on paper towels to drain. Reserve 2 tbsp. of the bacon grease and discard the rest (leave enough to cover the bottom of the pot). Return bacon grease to the same pot. Over medium-high heat, cook the onion petals  until they begin to soften and the edges begin to brown.

Add the garlic and continue to cook for an additional 1 minute. Add the cabbage and continue to cook and stir the cabbage by gently folding it for 5-7 minutes (make sure the cabbage is evenly coated). Add the seasoned salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix well.

At this point, liquid from the cabbage should begin collecting in the bottom of the pot. Reduce heat to low, cover, and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes (or until desired tenderness).

Just before serving, mix the bacon into the cooked cabbage. Serve immediately.
