Tangy Sautéed Cabbage and Onions with Bacon
I found this recipe on Closet Cooking that I thought would be perfect for a side dish to the corned beef I was making for dinner (will post tomorrow). It’s a tasty Saint Patrick’s Day side dish that is sure to please your guests. My husband loved this so much that he had three helpings with dinner and the rest of us really liked it too. I paired this cabbage dish and the corned beef with smashed red potatoes, for a delicious and hearty meal. Thanks for the great recipe, Kevin!
How to Make Tangy Sautéed Cabbage and Onions with Bacon
Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy and cooked through. Remove the bacon and place it on paper towels to drain. Chop into crumbles.
Place the onion into the skillet with the bacon grease and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes, or until tender. Side Note: My bacon was very lean so I had very little bacon grease in the skillet so I added a bit of olive oil cooking spray.
Add the cabbages to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-12 minutes, or until softened. Add the bacon crumbles, sugar, and apple cider vinegar then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; stir to combine and cook for another minute until the liquid evaporates. Taste and re-season if needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Oooh, yummy –love cabbage! This does sound delicious with corned beef. Bacon always gets my attention.
I usually serve 1/4 head of roasted cabbage with corned beef but I definitely have to try this sautéed version! I’m sure I’ll like it better than my roasted version!
Good morning Pam…It’s amazing how you make simple food so great. Delicious!!!
One of the reasons I love March – all of the cabbage recipes!
This is basically what my dad used to make for cabbage sandwiches when we were kids. Funny that I never liked cabbage at that time, but when my dad would make those sandwiches, I would just devour them!! Must have been all the love that went into them 🙂 Now, I would eat cabbage like this quite often, but Chris would probably call off our wedding!!! lol
Wow, I never knew cabbage could look so mouthwatering! Lovely recipe, Pam.
I love cabbage cooked like this, I also like it with noodles, yum yum Diane
Bacon adds so much flavor! Sounds delicious!
I’ve made two of kevin’s recipes this week…they are always so good! Loving this cabbage…I bet the bacon could even get the.boy to eat it!
Oh yum this sounds good. I do have some cabbage leftover and may have to make this!
Looks like a really good cabbage dish Pam. When I was a kid, my mom just boiled cabbage in water and somewhere along the line she put ketchup on it to get us kids to eat it – I still like it that way.
I have a head of cabbage just begging to be prepared!
It is perfect for St. Patty’s Day!
Great side dish! I would replace this for a regular coleslaw at a summer BBQ!
Perfect for St. Patty’s day!
I eat a lot of cabbage, this recipe sounds so yummy. Perfect for St Patrick’s Day.
Had some cabbage stir-fry last week too. Yours looks very delicious, Pam.
We ate something like that growing up called Haluski that also has egg noodles, so good!
This was fantastic, made it on Saturday for a bunch of friends, though I had to leave out the bacon.
this was a great dish…
This is a great side, I added chopped apples and it came out great.
