Simmered slowly with delicious flavor, this Sweet and Sour Cabbage is a great side or main dish that has minimal ingredients and is easy to put together.


- Bacon - Red cabbage - Garlic - White vinegar - Granulated sugar - Water - Kosher salt - Black pepper - Unsalted butter - Scallions

Cook the bacon until crispy in a large stockpot over medium-low heat. Let the bacon drain on a paper towel and set aside.



While the bacon is cooking, slice the cabbage. Discard any outer leaves and cut them into four even pieces, cutting through the core.


Add the garlic directly to the pot with the leftover bacon fat and cook, constantly stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.


Add the cabbage to the pot and toss until fully coated in fat. Season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.


Add the vinegar, sugar, and water. Stir until evenly combined. Cover and simmer, occasionally stirring for 30-45 minutes or until you reach your desired tenderness.
