Side dishes don’t get much easier than this simple but oh-so-tasty dish of Skillet Cabbage with Bacon & Garlic, which also happens to be low-carb and keto-friendly.
I love cooking with cabbage because it is hugely versatile, and it keeps forever (well, okay, for a week or two) when wrapped up nice and tight in the crisper.
It’s my go-to veggie when time is short, and I can count on everybody digging into this tasty dish.
With five minutes of prep and about 10 minutes of cooking time, you can have this dish on the table.
The hardest part is slicing the cabbage, and for that, you’ll need a big knife and a cutting board.
Start by cooking the bacon first until it is nearly crispy, add the garlic, and then get that cabbage busy cooking!
In this Skillet Cabbage with Bacon and Garlic dish, the cabbage does magic – load a heaping pile into the skillet (use a big one like this amazing cast iron pan) and after a few minutes, it shrinks! Because you’re loading in a whole pile of cabbage, you’ll need a pretty big pan.
Then, just cook it down until the cabbage is tender, shiny, and green. Add some salt and pepper, then serve it up with your favorite meats like this Garlic and Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin.
Cheap, versatile, and delicious, add this Skillet Cabbage with Bacon and Garlic to your rotation of favorite dishes!
