Braised Cabbage (for St. Patrick’s Day) [project #385]


Braised Cabbage (for St. Patrick’s Day) 

Total Time: 30 minutes

Skill Level: Easy Peasy. Budget: $. Serves: 4


  • 1 large head of cabbage, cut into 3/4″ strips
  • 1/4 lb. bacon, cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 c. vegetable stock
  • 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Sauté off the bacon in a pan over medium high heat until it is the somewhat chewy somewhat crunchy consistency that you want.
  2. Drain off all but 2 tbsp. of the bacon fat. Toss the cabbage in (it should sizzle a bit) and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until withered slightly.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and vinegar to the pan with a pinch of salt and cook the cabbage until tender and until most of the liquid is reduced.
  4. Serve with corned beef and other Irish fares.
