Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onions

All you need:
½ head of a small cabbage, cut in wedges then sliced (about 5 cups)

5 slices thick sliced smoked bacon, chopped

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1-2 tablespoons cider vinegar (to taste)

Salt and pepper to taste

All you need to do:

In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook the chopped bacon until fairly crispy.

Remove the bacon from the pan.

Remove most of the bacon grease (leave about a tablespoon of bacon grease) and reserve the grease in a small bowl.

Lower the heat to medium and add the onions. Cook until the onions are translucent.

Add the cabbage and stir.

Drizzle about ½ - 1 tablespoon of the reserved bacon grease over the cabbage and stir well.

Cook until the cabbage is soft (about 20 minutes).

Add the bacon back into the pan and mix well.

Continue cooking for a few minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the cider vinegar. Stir well.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

I found this on this great blog.
