Tuesday’s Cupful: Braised Cabbage w/ Bacon

A stand-by that never gets old

There’s so much variety in terms of greens that it’s easy to overlook regular cabbage.  This recipe doesn’t take long at all to prepare and cook.    

What you will need:

1 medium-sized saucepan or stock pot w/ lid
2 cups water
1 wooden spoon
½ head of cabbage, shredded or julienned      
         3 bacon slices, thinly cut
1   1 whole garlic clove
1 yellow onion, diced small
Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking and Directions:

Heat up pan at medium-high heat.  Place bacon, onion, and garlic in pan.  Sautee until onion turns translucent.  Plus bacon should crisp.  Next, add cabbage and let leaves wilt a bit.  Add water.  Let ingredients reach a simmer then lower to medium-low heat.  Cook for another 20 to 30 minutes then it’s ready to serve as a side dish.
