Fried Cabbage
5 thick slices or 7 thin slices of bacon
2 Tablespoons butter
1 small white onion, sliced very thin
1 small head of cabbage - cut in half
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 bay leaf (optional)

Cut bacon into 1" pieces. Place in large frying pan and cook until ready to turn. Add butter and onion and cook till medium brown. Add cut cabbage and add bay leaf if using. Add enough water to cover (1/4 cup at a time.)
Cover and allow to steam, stirring often, and adding water as needed to help loosen the brown bits in the pan.
Cook 15-20 minutes (it will cook down quite a bit in volume.) Taste to check for desired tenderness. When almost done, add vinegar, stir, and heat an additional 5 minutes. Sprinkle with coarse black pepper just before serving if desired.

Makes 4-6 servings. 4 - 6 grams carbs per serving.

Now you've made me want this, LT!

My Polish relatives made this all the time, but used dill instead of bay for the herb.

My MIL used to very slowly fry cabbage with onions. Basically she carmalized it as you would onions. DH loves the stuff. I add a touch of garlic and he's in pig heaven.
