Steamed Cabbage with Bacon

To go with the Oxtails I made tonight I decided to make another favorite of my Grama Glo’s, steamed cabbage. Mmmm mmmm mmm!


Steamed Cabbage

1 large head of green Cabbage
1 pack of Bacon
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 cup of water


This is probably the easiest thing you’ll ever make. Ever.
Shout-out to Jessica’s alien fingers making an appearance in todays dinner 🙂

Quarter and largely chop cabbage and set aside. Using kitchen scissors, cut up the bacon into small pieces, this is the easiest way. Brown the bacon and set aside on a paper towel to drain the grease. You won’t want to use ALL of the bacon fat from a whole pack of bacon, so dump about half of the oil out, keeping the other half in the pan.

Add all of the cabbage and heat on medium until sizzling. Add 1/2 cup of water, salt and pepper to taste, and cover. Stir every so often but try to keep it covered so it steams down. Cook for about 20-30min. Put in a serving dish and top with cooked bacon!
