Fried Cabbage and Bacon
3 pounds cabbage head
1/2 pound sliced bacon
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cut the cabbage into quarter. Remove any wilted and
discolored outer leaves and cut out the core from the cabbage pieces.
Cut the cabbage into a large 1-inch dice.
Cook the bacon in a 4-quart pot over medium heat
until crisp.. Remove the bacon to paper towels to drain.
There should be about 1/2 cup of bacon drippings in the pan.
Add the cabbage to these drippings and cook without stirring until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes.
Add the water, sugar, salt, and pepper and cook covered
until the cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes.
Crumble the cooked bacon into the cabbage and serve hot.
