Fried Cabbage & Bacon Low Carb Side Dish


I’m always looking for new ideas for side dishes. Today I decided to try fried cabbage and bacon. We are grilling steaks and I wanted something different to go along side.

Here’s what I used:

  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1/2 head chopped cabbage
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika

There’s just two of us so you could adjust the amounts as needed. I fried five pieces of bacon up and removed them until later.

I used half of a yellow onion, sliced and a tsp of garlic, I added them to the bacon grease and caramelized them.

I chopped up half of a head of cabbage and put it in with the onions and garlic. I added some salt and pepper and a tablespoon of smoked paprika.

I felt I didn’t have enough bacon grease so I added a drizzle of olive oil, added the bacon back that I chopped, stirred everything together and placed a lid on top to let the cabbage cook down and soften.

This was so delicious! I’ll definitely make it again!
