      My version has a bit more Asian twist.

      6-8 slices of bacon
      1 large onion, chopped
      1/2 to a whole head of cabbage, chopped into 1/2 inch thick slices
      1 tbsp tamari or wheat free soy sauce
      Black pepper to taste

      Fry onion and bacon together in a large pot or wok until bacon is crisping and onion is soft. Add cabbage, stir around to coat in fat, then stir-fry over med-high heat. Cook until tender-crisp and still bright coloured. It's nicer if not overcooked. Add the tamari/soy sauce and stir to coat. Yummy!

        That sounds like a good alternative. I didn't have any tamari though; i did however through in a tbsp of apple cider vinegar. Turned out decent, would eat again.

          LOL true.. My DH hates it when he smells cabbage or seafood cooking. If you crank up the vent fan to high while it's cooking, you should be fine. Also, light a candle for a few hrs, Hershey's chocolate candle is a great one to remove odors.

            I adore fried cabbage. As a kid, my mom fried it in bacon grease which was bomber. Then of course conventional wisdom convinced us all that was bad, so we switched to olive oil (not nearly as tasty) now I'm back to bacon grease. I fry it slow until the cabbage is well carmelized. Delicious.

              A chocolate candle! I'll give it a try, but I hope it doesn't make me fixate on chocolate!

              The smell lingers for ages otherwise. It turns us off eating leftovers the next day.

                I haven't bought or eaten anything but dark chocolate for almost a year, and that has about killed all my milk choc cravings..
                Altho the choc candle does smell d@mn divine, it hasn't made me want to do anything more than enjoy the aroma.

                  Oh good - sounds like the perfect solution then, thanks
