Cabbage Tomato Recipe
How To Make:
1/2 small or medium green cabbage, sliced and chopped
6 pieces bacon
1 can diced tomatoes 28 oz
1/2 medium onion, diced (white or yellow onion)
1 Tbsp dill, dried
1 tsp garlic, minced (or 2 small cloves garlic)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
In a large skillet, cook the bacon until it is crisp. Drain and reserve the fat. Crumble the bacon into pieces and set it aside on a plate or in a bowl.
Pull out a cutting board and while your bacon is cooking, chop up your head of cabbage.
Add 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat back into the large sauté pan that you used to cook the bacon. This will bulk up the flavor of your dish.
Add your cabbage, garlic, dill and onion and fry over medium-high heat it until the cabbage has softened and wilted. It may feel like a lot of cabbage, but cabbage cooks down.
Drain the tomatoes and then add them to the cabbage. Continue to stir for a few more minutes over medium heat to cook everything through.
Add the crumbled bacon to the cabbage mixture and sauté again for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve hot. Enjoy!
If you plan to leave the pan on the stove while preparing anything else, be sure to leave it at lower heat so that it doesn’t burn.
Can I Use Turkey Bacon Or Veggie Bacon With This Dish?
Yes! With this sautéed cabbage with bacon you can choose the bacon you like. With both of these options, you’ll omit adding the bacon fat back to the frying pan (unless you have a bit from frying the turkey bacon or want to add 1 tablespoon of chicken broth instead), but you are not limited to pork bacon for this recipe.
What Goes Well With Cabbage?
Cabbage is one of those universal vegetables that can really go well with everything. A great side dish such as this bacon cabbage tomato recipe has a bunch of extra flavor, so you can eat it by itself with some brown rice, but as a side, there are lots of options. Serve this with a chicken, pork or whitefish main dish and you’ve got a complete, flavorful meal.
