  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium head of green cabbage, cored and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (optional)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (optional)



  1. Prepare Ingredients: Chop the bacon into bite-sized pieces. Chop the onion and mince the garlic. Core and chop the cabbage into bite-sized pieces.


  1. Cook Bacon: In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set it aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  2. Sauté Onion and Garlic: In the same skillet with the bacon grease, add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Cook Cabbage: Add the chopped cabbage to the skillet. Stir well to coat the cabbage with the bacon grease, onions, and garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika if using. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender and slightly caramelized, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Add Bacon and Vinegar: Once the cabbage is cooked to your desired tenderness, stir in the cooked bacon pieces. If using, add the apple cider vinegar and stir well to combine. Adjust seasoning with additional salt and pepper if needed.


  1. Serve Hot: Serve the fried cabbage hot as a side dish or a main course. Enjoy!
