We absolutely loved this recipe for Irish Cabbage. It’s simply delicious. The cabbage was super tender, the addition of bacon, well…let’s face it, bacon never hurt anything and after making this recipe I have realized that apple cider vinegar and cabbage are meant for each other. Right before serving the cabbage is placed under the broiler giving the cabbage a nice golden brown color and crisping up the bacon perfectly.
Give Cabbage a Chance
If you haven’t eaten cabbage in awhile or you’re convinced that you don’t like cabbage, then you have got to try this recipe and give cabbage a second chance. This recipe is not only fast and easy to make, requiring less than six ingredients, it’s super delicious and super duper affordable. Irish Cabbage costs under $5.00 to make if you use inexpensive bacon. Not bad considering this dish will serve 4 people.
