Shayne's Fried Cabbage

Morena V


Another recipe I learned from my grandmother(Chick). I usually eyeball while I'm cooking so my measurements are approximate. I love the flavor of this cabbage. I think you will too. As you can see in step 2 of my pictures I had to improvise. I forgot to take a picture of the oil in the actual skillet I used to make the cabbage in. :/

Add this water to the cabbage. Stir well then cover and stir every 5 mins until the cabbage is cooked to desired tenderness.
