  • 2-3 slices bacon
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 head of cabbage
  • salt pepper
  • garlic powder


In a large dutch oven or frying pan, cook chopped up bacon until almost burnt. Add chopped onion and cabbage and stir until cabbage is wilted. Add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cook until most of the water is gone and cabbage is desired tenderness. If need be, more water can be added. Add seasoning to taste.
