Talked with friend Dave awhile back about what he has been up to this fall. He could work circles around me! Cutting wood, butchering hogs, running his farm, canning produce from his garden... he had a bumper crop of cabbage this year and put a lot of it up as freezer slaw.
One thing he mentioned was his love of fried cabbage. I couldn't stop thinking about it, I had to make a batch.
I love it too! I don't make it very often but it's one of my favorite comfort foods. :)
There are many ways to make it, I do it this way..
I sauteed sliced onions and minced garlic until tender in bacon drippings..
I added cubed smoked pork to the skillet....
then the cabbage....
Cooked until tender, seasoned with kosher salt and cracked black pepper, then gave the cabbage a quick squeeze of lemon juice.
I love the stuff. :)
Goes well with jalapeno cornbread too.
If you see this Dave, thanks for mentioning fried cabbage... lol
