By Low Carb Layla: Fried cabbage is basic staple item in the low carb world. Surprisingly I’ve never tried it until I made it tonight. It was so good!
I feel like I’ve been missing out on something by not trying it sooner. My kids didn’t care much for it but my carb-etarian Hubs thought it was excellent! I looked up a few recipes to get a feel for how to prepare and wound up cooking it in a very similar way I cook my Bacon and Onion Green Beans which are heaven on a plate (this cabbage ranks right up there). I think you can cook anything with bacon, onions, salt and pepper and it will come out fabulous! I served this with the Laughing Cow Steak and thought they were a nice combo on my plate. Bring on the cabbage! *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

In a large pan cook the chopped bacon over medium to medium-high heat. Once the fat renders off and there’s plenty of bacon grease in the pan, add the chopped onion. Right when the bacon has just started to crisp, add the chopped cabbage, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce (optional but I like the tiny bit of smokey tang that it gives some foods). Stir occasionally until cabbage is softened. I like some pieces to get a little pan browned so I don’t stir very often. Taste before serving as you may need to add more salt and pepper depending on your preference.
