Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

Certainly! Here’s a concise and original recipe for “Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic”:


  • 4 cups green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional for heat)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Start by heating a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the diced bacon to the hot pan and cook until it becomes crispy, usually about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Remove the bacon from the pan, using a slotted spoon, and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess grease.
  4. In the same pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. Allow it to melt and combine.
  5. Add the chopped onion to the pan and sauté for about 3-4 minutes, or until it becomes translucent and starts to turn golden.
  6. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute until fragrant.
  7. Now, add the thinly sliced cabbage to the pan. Toss it with the onions and garlic to coat it with the bacon drippings and oil mixture.
  8. Season the cabbage with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and optional red pepper flakes for some heat. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.
  9. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pan. Allow the cabbage to cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it becomes tender and slightly caramelized.
  10. Once the cabbage is cooked to your desired level of tenderness, stir in the crispy bacon pieces.
  11. Remove the pan from heat, garnish with chopped fresh parsley, and serve hot.
