    Skyrim-Inspired Apple, Bacon, Cabbage Saute on Primal Homeskillet

    Shop Now
    My recipe, inspired by Apple Cabbage Stew from the popular video game, Skyrim!

    Read my blog post, just because it's awesome:
    Primal Homeskillet: Skyrim-Inspired Apple, Bacon, Cabbage Saute

    But here's the recipe anyway.

    Servings: 2-4
    Ingredients:
    1/2 lb of thick-sliced bacon or pancetta, cut into chunks (Trader Joe's Ends and Pieces will do)
    2 small granny smith apples, cut into small chunks
    1/2 medium head of cabbage, thinly sliced, heart removed
    6 tablespoons chicken broth
    1 tablespoon coriander
    1 teaspoon of cinnamon
    1 teaspoon red pepper flake (optional spicy kick, more if you're a badass)
    Salt to taste

    1. Saute bacon over medium high heat until somewhat crispy.
    2. Add apples and saute until brown, then add cabbage and chicken broth. Side note: I make my own chicken broth and freeze it into ice cubes trays. I used four ice cubes for this recipe.
    3. Once cabbage is soft, add spices.
    4. Saute into Oblivion (haha, Elder Scrolls) until cabbage is quite soft and has melded with the spices, about 20 minutes. The apples should be caramelized and hard to distinguish from the bacon.

    Serve with pork chops!
    Visit my blog Primal Homeskillet. And eat it too.

    Hmmm...

    Pretty traditional actually.
    German side of my family always made a braised apple, onion, and cabbage... spiced with caraway, with kielbasa, bratwurst, or a pork chop for meat.
    Delish!
    When I make it I do more of a saute and leave some of the body in the veg instead of doing a full braise.
    I just can't have the kielbasa/wurst anymore.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    This is my cabbage go-to recipe (next I will add apples!); adapted from something Mark posted a few weeks back:

    8oz 'cowboy bacon' (uncured, hickory smoked pepper bacon that is in a big wad; not neat slices)
    1lb ground meat of choice
    2-3 large onions; red or yellow
    1 head napa or regular old cabbage; sliced into 'noodles' and heart removed.
    1t caraway seed, whole
    salt/pepper

    Saute bacon in cast iron pan over medium heat until just beginning to brown. Add ground meat and complete browning. Remove from pan but keep drippings (I keep all drippings). Add onions to pan and cook down for at least 10 minutes. Add cabbage to onions and stir until cabbage is soft. Add caraway seed. Toss in the meat again and reheat. Salt/pepper to taste.

    The apple will be a good fall addition. Thanks! I love this meal reheated.

    I was about to make this, but took an arrow to the knee...



    Seriously, this sounds great and I have been thinking about making pork chops for dinner sometime this week.

    i tried this & it was pretty good. I was surprised at how sweet the apples made the whole thing.

    Cabbage is a hard sell on my husband but he ate this without protest. It was good w/ deer sausage.

    I finally got around to making this....This may be my favorite way to have cabbage now! I used pink lady apples, since that was what I had on hand. It was superb
