12 slices bacon (chopped)
2 small cabbage (cored and chopped)
2 Tbsp garlic (minced)
½ large white or yellow onion sautéed in bacon grease
8 cups chicken broth
each, salt & pepper to taste
Brown the bacon in a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat by placing the bacon strips into the pan while cold. Bring to medium heat and allow the bacon to cook until it releases naturally from the pan. Turn the bacon and cook the other side until it releases again. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, then chop the cooked bacon into strips or pieces.
Place the chopped cabbage into a 6 qt crockpot or slow cooker (reduce the recipe in half if you have a smaller crockpot). Add the onion, garlic, bacon, and broth, then combine with the cabbage.
Cover and cook on high setting for 4 hours, or on low setting for 6-8 hours until the cabbage is tender. *If you are using a half head of cabbage, the cabbage is cooked in 2 hours at high heat and approximately 4-6 hours on low heat.
Taste and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve using a slotted spoon. Enjoy!
