How to add cabbage into pan and get a tasty Southern dish with almost no prep

Print this recipe
Cabbage has a bad reputation, but you'll fall in love with it in this dish. The cabbage is stir-fried with bacon and just a hint of cane syrup to make it slightly sweet. Be sure to use a good, sturdy pot when making Southern fried cabbage to avoid burning the cabbage. Enamelware works well, but so does a good old-fashioned cast-iron pot.
This cabbage is tasty served on its own, but it's even better as a side dish. Serve it with fried chicken and biscuits for a real treat. You can modify this cabbage to suit your tastes. It's particularly delicious with just a little bit of cayenne pepper thrown into the mix.
