This delicious stir fry is a complete meal, providing an equal balance of both fats and proteins.
Get ready to transform the ordinary cabbage into something extraordinary. This dish will become a favorite of everyone’s. It even warms up nicely the next day…..if you have any leftovers to warm!
I use 24 ounces of Bacon for this recipe. You can use more or less because bacon is the perfect equalizer. Bacon will always provide an almost equal amount of fat and protein ratio. Of course, more bacon is always better! No matter how much bacon you use, dice it up before you cook it, then cook it until the bacon is crispy and the fat is melted.
After your bacon is cooked, add in the diced onion. You can use more onion, but it will add more carbs. I have even tried this adding 1 Tablespoon of Onion Powder, but the carbs are about the same and fresh tastes so much better!
Once the onion is cooked and tender, it’s time to add your shredded cabbage to the frying pan. Set the burner at a medium heat and sprinkle on the seasonings. Place the lid on top and start reducing it down.
As the cabbage starts to cook, it will reduce in size and you will be able to stir it in better. Occasionally stir the cabbage into the bacon fat and onion so that it will soak up those delicious flavors! Within 10 minutes or so, you will have a wonderful meal to share with your whole family!
