Apple Bacon Cabbage

By Kevin • All, Meat • 14 Oct 2012

Readers familiar with traditional Eastern European cuisine will immediately recognize the comfort food flavour combination of bacon, onion and cabbage. I’ve used apples here to add some crisp texture and to act as a palate cleansing foil to the bacon.

Time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4


8 ounces bacon – chopped
1 red onion – chopped
1 green cabbage – sliced then chopped
½ cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons stevia
2 apples – cored, halved and sliced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


Place a large, deep frying pan or Dutch oven on medium-high heat then add the bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally for ten minutes or until nearly crisp.

Add the onion, cabbage, vinegar and stevia, stirring often until the cabbage browns. This will take approximately twenty-five minutes.

Gently stir in the apples, salt and pepper. Continue cooking and stirring occasionally for two minutes.
