1 large head cabbage (cored and sliced)
1 1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)

Place the bacon in a large stock pot and cook over medium-high heat until crispy, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon and save to add at finish.
Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion caramelizes; about 10 minutes.
Immediately stir in the cabbage and continue to cook and stir another 10 minutes.

When cabbage is tender, crumble and add the bacon and serve.
