  1. One 12-ounce packet of bacon
  2. ¼ cup of bacon fat
  3. One little cabbage head, cored and cut finely
  4. to taste, grind black pepper


1: Prepare the ingredients:

  • Remove the core by slicing the cabbage thinly.
  • Dice the bacon into tiny bits.
  • Slice the onion thinly, then chop the garlic.

2: Cook the bacon.

  • Cook the chopped bacon in a big skillet or frying pan over medium heat until it’s crispy and browned, which should take approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon from the pan and place it on a dish covered with paper towels to absorb any remaining oil.

3: Cook the Vegetables:

  • Add the butter and allow it to melt in the same skillet that contains the bacon drippings.
  • After adding the onion slices to the skillet, sauté them for about five minutes, or until they are transparent.
  • Add the minced garlic and stir. Cook for one more minute, or until fragrant.

4: Add the Cabbage:

  • When the onions and garlic are in the pan, add the thinly sliced cabbage.
  • To taste, add salt and pepper for seasoning.
  • Cook the cabbage for ten to fifteen minutes, stirring often, or until it has wilted and turned soft. If you want it to be softer, you may cook it longer.

5: Combine with Bacon:

  • Return the fried bacon to the skillet and heat until the cabbage reaches your desired softness.
  • After thoroughly mixing all the ingredients, simmer them for a further two to three minutes to allow the flavors to merge.

6: Serve

  • Place the bacon-topped fried cabbage on a platter for serving.
  • Use a lot of black pepper to season.
  • If desired, garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
  • As a filling and tasty side dish, serve it hot.
