German Fest Recipe Tutorial: Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onion

Last but not least, and again, another flop with everyone in my household but me is another side dish. I happened to love this and can definitely envision it in a bierock type wrap.

And here’s a view of my mother-in-laws home town, Weinheim Germany.

OK… Enough sight seeing! Onto the yummies. This recipe is super, super simple and REALLY yummy. I think next time though, I’m going to half the recipe as it won’t get eaten before it spoils otherwise.


Cut your cabbage and onion ahead of time. Beware of strong onions that smell a lot like methane.


Cut your bacon up and fry it in a pot. I love bacon.


Add your onions and garlic to all the fun happening in the pot and cook until your onions are caramelized.


Add your cabbage and fry for 10 minutes.


Add your spices. Cover. Reduce heat and fry stirring occasionally for 30 minutes.


Then serve with your favorite German dishes and know that if you’re honoring someone special, they’re probably looking down and smiling, so proud of what you’ve accomplished.
