    Simple, easy, comfort meal:

    Sautée ground beef, add shredded cabbage, Sautée some more.

    Add butter, salt, pepper, maybe garlic.

    Eat!

    Another one is to mix some wholegrain mustard with your fat of choice, then slowly fry shredded cabbage in it (we prefer to use butter, but any fat would be OK, I think). It's delicious with bacon in it, too.

    I used to do this with rice. I had forgotten it until I saw this. Must do! (without rice of course)

    1 onion, quartered
    bacon fat
    sea salt to taste

    Oven at 350°. In baking dish, arrange cabbage and onions, cut sides up. Tuck garlic in between the leaves of the cabbage. Drizzle some bacon fat over the tops of the cabbage and onion, and salt to your liking. You can cover this with aluminum foil but I don't. Roast 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how you like the texture of your cabbage. Crispy? 30 minutes. The longer it goes, the softer it gets.

    Fried Cabbage with Bacon, onion & garlic

    6-10 slices bacon chopped
    1 large onion diced
    2 cloves garlic minced
    1 large head cabbage cored & sliced (I used red 'cuz that's what I grew)
    1 tbsp salt or to taste (I used lots less)
    1 tsp. ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp paprika (didn't have any so I sustituted a few hits of cayanne pepper)

    Cook bacon in large stockpot over med-high heat 'til crispy, about 10 minutes.
    Add the onion & garlic, cook & stir 'til onion caramelizes, about 10 minutes.
    Immediately stir in the cabbage and continue to cook and stir another 10 minutes.
    Add seasonings, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes more.

    Interestingly you never pour off any bacon fat...it mixes in! Grok would be proud.
    Well I think I just found what I'm making for lunch tomorrow.

    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.
