Ingredients:

  • 4 strips thick-cut bacon, diced
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 head cabbage, diced
  • 2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp Celtic sea salt

Instructions:

  1. Bacon should be cut into thick slices and pan-fried until crispy. Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside.
  2. Drain most of the bacon fat; a little can be left for flavor, but too much will result in an oily texture.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat until frothy.
  4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. To avoid sticking or burning, stir constantly.
  5. Toss the garlic and cabbage in the pan to evenly coat them in butter.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Allow cabbage to reduce by half, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning and ensure even cooking. Return the bacon to the pan.
  8. It’s time to serve when the cabbage has lost a lot of bulk and has turned shiny, slightly translucent, and has nice browned parts.
  9. Serve right away.
  10. Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container for up to four days in the refrigerator and three months in the freezer.
