Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onion

This fried cabbage with bacon and onions recipe is salty, sweet, buttery, hearty, and so delicious!


  • 4 strips thick cut bacon, diced
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 head cabbage, diced
  • 1 tsp celtic sea salt


  1. Cut bacon into thick chunks, pan fry until crunchy. Remove from pan and set aside.

  2. Heat butter in large pan on medium-high heat until melted and foamy. 

  3. Add diced onions to pan, cook until soft and transparent, about 4 minutes. Stir to prevent sticking or burning. 

  4. Add garlic to pan, cook until fragrant and soft, about 3 minutes. 

  5. Add cabbage to pan and toss well to coat in butter. 

  6. Generously season with salt. 

  7. Let cabbage reduce by half, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally as it cooks down to prevent burning and allow it to cook evenly. Add bacon back to pan.

  8. When cabbage has lost much of it's volume and started to turn shiny, slightly translucent, and has lovely browned bits, it is ready to serve.

  9. Serve immediately.

  10. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days, three months in the freezer.
