This is  a paleo recipe. It tastes AMAZING :) This one is on the top of my list of favorite side dishes for sure! Its sooo tasty (and requires little prep!)  I made this one up myself!

Green Cabbage $1.25

Step 1: Prep

1Green Cabbage (makes about 2 servings)

Quarter and core the cabbage. Cut thinly (set aside). Cut Onion thinly.

Warm up 2 T of olive oil on the stove in a dutch oven or large pot that has a lid. Cut onion thinly - put into pot and cook about 3 minutes until tender - add salt.

    I've made this several times. It's awesome. Fry the diced bacon up until it's crispy. You can use shredded cabbage if you want. Add the cabbage to the bacon, with the fat still in the pan. You can take some out if you want. Stir it all together, cover it and let it cook. Stir it occasionally. Every five minutes or so. Medium heat works. The water from the cabbage and the grease from the bacon keep it from sticking, however, it will brown if the temp is too hot. Cook until it reaches your personal desired tenderness of the cabbage. I add garlic to mine. Minced or powder at the end. Garlic will turn bitter if cooked too long.
