This is a great recipe to make for St. Patrick's day, but if you're a fan of cabbage, this dish cannot be beat no matter the time of year! This dish takes almost no time to prepare or cook, so you'll be able to pull together an entire meal in a flash! Enjoy this easy cabbage recipe, and let us know if you would make any changes in the comments below. We think some hot sauce or red pepper flakes might be just the thing...


  • 1 head of cabbage, shredded
  • 1 pack of bacon, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. In a large skillet, add bacon and cook until just beginning to get crispy. Add bell pepper, onion, and spices and mix well. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the veggies are tender.

  2. Add cabbage and broth. Cook about 20 minutes, cabbage will wilt and become translucent. Add apple cider vinegar and cook 5 minutes more.

This may sound a little strange but some sliced carrots or however you prefer them to be cut and diced tomatoes would really enhance this dish to another level. I've never had bacon with cabbage before so I'm kinda curious on what that would be like and I agree the red pepper flakes would probably bring just the perfect amount of heat to bring it all together.

It is true that steamed cabbage can be a very bland dish and this recipe will most definitely take it to the next level and then some. I usually make cabbage once a month as my husband is not a big fan. This recipe for cabbage just may win him over.

Ok, so I am looking for a new cabbage recipe and this is the second one that the recipe calls for a pound of bacon. Are these dishes designed to be the main course or a side?

This is a great combination of flavors to spice up what is otherwise a fairly bland dish. I like adding bacon to cabbage, and the addition of the pepper and onion really kicks it up, along with the garlic. I'd be tempted to swap beef broth for the chicken broth to see how that makes it taste. It's a great recipe and one I'd like to try soon.
