Fried Cabbage Slaw

It’s one of my favorite vegetables: cabbage.

I like it in just about everything. Raw in coleslaw or on top of tacos, cooked down with corned beef or fried with bacon—cabbage is a star in my world.
Not to mention the fact that it’s cheap. I bought a head of cabbage for 52 cents at the grocery store the other day. A large head of cabbage can last for days and feed an army, so at 52 cents?! You can’t beat that.

I’ve been trying to save on my grocery bill so I can put that money into savings. We’re trying to save right now to buy a house, so cutting down on the grocery bill was the first thing to enact. I’m using up food in my freezer, pantry and fridge first and making recipes around that. I had a big chunk of bacon left from the week before, so that went in with this fried cabbage recipe.This is like your typical fried cabbage recipe, but in slaw form. I shredded the cabbage and added some sliced carrots to make it more like a coleslaw. Unlike coleslaw, however, this is best eaten warm. There’s nothing quite like a big bowl of piping hot fried cabbage.

I like my fried cabbage spicy, so I tossed in a lot of red pepper flakes. If you’re not a fan of spicy, just leave those out.

Enjoy!
