Fried Cabbage

 Fried Cabbage

This is the perfect fall side that is easy to make and quick to prepare. When I don't use my slow cooker, I love to use a cast iron skillet for my cooking. The cast iron brings out the richness in the food and it reminds me of the old timey country dinners.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium cabbage
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers
  • 1 Tablespoon of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of pepper
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • sprinkle of white sugar optional

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, I use a large cast iron skillet, add oil and preheat pan
  • Dice cabbage, onion, and bell pepper and add to skillet. Make sure it is on medium high and stir often.
  • As the cabbage begins to fry add all your seasonings to the pan.
  • Slowly add a few drops of water to the pan, you will see the cabbage drippings turn brown, STIR, that is the flavor. The water will evaporate quickly.
  • Turn heat down to medium low and add a sprinkle, a baby spoon of white sugar. You do not have to add sugar, completely optional.
  • Simmer for 20-25 minutes.
