Now I'm from the south. My hubby is a transplant from the north. When we met in Arkansas some 27 years ago, I was boilin' cabbage with bacon in it. This northern guy had to tell me how to fix it. Seems some other southerner had told him. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

How to Make PEGGI'S SOUTHERN FRIED CABBAGE

Step-by-Step

  1. Place all ingredients in 10 3/4" cast iron skillet in the order given. Do not mix up at this time.
  2. Start out on high heat for a minute or two, until cabbage starts to "give it up",then reduce heat to low & cover skillet.
  3. Give it about 5 minutes before you start to stir it in skillet. Then, for the next 10 min, about, stir occasionally so it won't burn. Leave lid on to cook. Don't over stir it or it will just mush & not brown.
  4. Cook until it is starting to get translucent & tender-crisp & brown somewhat, as in picture above.
  5. Serve with anything. We had it with hamburger steaks & sauted onions today.
