Braised Cabbage

Cabbage is one of the foods that made a regular appearance in our CSA boxes. And while I’m a big fan of homeamde coleslaw, Hubby is not. So we had to find another way to prepare our weekly head of cabbage.

Braised Cabbage

This recipe came from just trial and error, playing around until we found something that we liked. And it’s no wonder we liked it, it’s cabbage braised in bacon drippings. This recipes makes quite a bit of braised cabbage, but it reheats nicely, so we just eat the leftovers until they are gone.

    Cabbage is everywhere for St. Patrick’s Day! I love boiled cabbage, though for years I avoided it. This looks like a way to really infuse some crazy flavor into it!

      So glad you liked it!

      I haven’t been to BonBonerie yet. I will definitely have to check them out. I’ve also never made opera cream cake either…
