Savoy Cabbage and Bacon

I know this isn't a super complicated recipe, but bear with me it is DELICIOUS! Magic happens when bacon and cabbage meet up with an appearance by apple-cider vinegar.You may have seen savoy cabbage in the grocery store and wondered “what is up with cabbage’s cousin”? It may look rough, tough and mean but it is actually a lot more tender and delicate than regular cabbage or red cabbage, thus making it perfect for slaws, salads, sautéing, or wraps. I like to sauté savoy cabbage because it takes no time time to tenderize so it is a quick side-dish, add some bacon…DONE AND DONE!

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Chop bacon and cook down in skillet about 10 minutes until crisp
  2. Once bacon is crispy add savoy cabbage, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper
  3. Cook down cabbage until tender, about 5 minutes


This is perfect for those hot-summer nights where you don't want to make an elaborate side-dish. You could even cook this on the grill in a cast-iron skillet or on a propane-grill's side-burner! Enjoy!
