Greetings from Ireland my friends! I’m continuing on my journey to find BACON AROUND THE WORLD!
Today I’m sharing a REALLY yummy recipe which is something I’m sure you’ve either heard of or possibly had to eat before…………But this MIGHT be a little different with the sweetness of brown sugar and the saltiness of bacon. You definitely need to try it!
Irish Fried Cabbage and Bacon
- 6 ounces thick bacon + drippings
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 1/2 head green cabbage, shredded
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cook bacon in a deep cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 4 to 6 minutes. Use a slotted spatula to remove the bacon pieces and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Add the diced onion to the bacon drippings and cook until translucent, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Add shredded cabbage to the pan and toss to coat. Add in brown sugar, salt, and pepper and cook until cabbage is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Add the bacon back to the cabbage and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Serve hot and season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
Doesn’t this sound EASY PEASY? Well it is, and if you “think” you don’t like cabbage – give this recipe a try – you just might change your mind. I kind of think the brown sugar is the key to why this is so amazing…….of course having bacon in it doesn’t HURT (!!)
I’m liking this guy’s hat !!
Next week I’m heading off to Italy…………..oh boy. I’ll find something totally delicious with bacon to share with you next Saturday so until then – keep on eating BACON!
INDEED I DID!
