You will need:
3 pork bacon strips thick-cut
1 medium cabbage head about 3 lbs, roughly chopped
1 medium onion diced
1 medium red bell pepper diced
1/ 3 cup of water
1/ 4 tbsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
1 tbsp. hot sauce (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet, sauté the bacon, bell pepper, and onion over medium heat for 7 minutes.
Add the red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper, and stir well. Add the water and chopped cabbage to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 20-25 minutes, or until the water evaporates.
Once the water evaporates, keep frying the cabbage for about 10 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the hot sauce. Serve.
Tips: Some cabbage varieties cook faster than others. Adjust the cooking time, if necessary. If needed, add a little bit more water. Other seasonings, such at Italian seasonings and paprika, can also be added to taste if desired.
