Good ole Fried Cabbage

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

Never had fried cabbage, but with the onions and meat can see it would be delicious. Can you tell me more about freezer slaw? I've never known a way to preserve cabbage other than kraut or keep it in a cold place.

Hi Larry!]
I'm not sure how he made the slaw but I will ask. It sounded tasty too.
Thanks, Hope you are having a great weekend. :)

cowgirl,
Just watched on TV, Pioneer Woman challenged Bobby Flay to a throwdown...and she won.
You could do that too. You would win easily.
I'll be watching.

cowgirl said...

Dale, thanks for that! You've made my day. :)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Big Dude said...

That's a great idea Jeanie - challenge him to an open campfire cookoff using a truck rim - you are definitely the queen at that.

I am wiping the drool off my keyboard while reading this post!

I do fried cabbage but never with onions. I may try adding them next time!

Pammy Sue said...

David said...

Add some potatoe and you have bubble and squeak! Sounds wonderful on a chilly Autumn day!

Hay Jeanie! I love cabbage but never had it fried. Will have to give it a try. I was looking back at earlier post the one about makeing a fattie piston this was testerday. Last night I dreamed that I used my jerkey cannon to make the fattie! Worked good in my dream will have to see how it workes in real life.lol The weather has turned warm so had to put the hogs on hold. Maby this weekend will let you know how it turns out. Two 400 lb hogs will give me something to do this winter! Hope you have a blessed day your friend Mark:)

We love fried cabbage but I have never tried your way and it sure sounds good! Do you like sourkraut?

Belle said...

Looks yummy.

Frugal Canadian Hermit said...

Hey Jeanie, the cabbage looks pretty darned good. I love cabbage also and don't have it enough. I think I like almost anything cabbage, especially cabbage soup (bortch), if that's how it is spelled. And cabbage rolls. I'm just catching up on a some blogs, as I hav'nt been on the computer much lately.

cowgirl said...

Thank you Dining Alone,I appreciate you stopping by.

cowgirl said...

Thank you Tricia! I've not had the chance to get Dave's cabbage slaw recipe yet. Seems like both of us are keeping too busy right now. :)
I bet your peppers will be tasty this winter. Thanks for stopping by!

cowgirl said...

Mark That's great about your jerky gun... let me know how it works! :)
Good luck with the hogs.
Thanks Mark!

cowgirl said...
