  • 1 head Cabbage cored and chopped
  • 6 slices Bacon chopped
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 tsp minced Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar


  • Cook the chopped bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat until crisp (about 6 minutes).
  • Add the onion and cook until it is soft and browned (about 4 minutes).
  • Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add in the chopped cabbage and cook stirring frequently for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add vinegar and stir.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes (stir occasionally).


It's best to not drain the bacon grease, it gives the fried cabbage a ton more flavor.
