I'm from Indiana, so when i found this recipie to be very similar to the one my grandmother used to make, i was so excited! It was so good! One suggestion-make sure that when you're cooking the cabbage to wait untill at least some of it is brown or nearly black to take it off the heat because this is when the cabbage has the most flavor. Also, try to use a cast iron skillet if you have one, that's how it's traditionally made.


I liked this, but the grease was a little much. Once I remade it with alterations it was great. Try, instead of cooking raw bacon, starting with the butter and either cooked bacon pieces (but still soft) or packaged bacon bits (the kind that is real bacon and still chewy). This provides enough grease for the flavor, without all of the calories. If you end up short on liquid, just add olive oil.


I found no grease problem with this recipe. [Cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, drain, crumble, set aside. Combine butter, cabbage, celery, green pepper, salt, pepper and onions. Cover, steam 15-20 minutes. Stir in crisp bacon just before serving.]
