I made this one night last week and it was soooo good!

1 head of cabbage
3-4 slices of bacon
1/2 red onion (more or less for your taste)
1/3 cup water
salt and pepper to taste

fry bacon in pan and then remove when crispy. Add onion and cook for a few minutes then add shredded cabbage and water. Put a lid on it until it cooks down stirring occassionally. I like to cook my cabbage until very tender and almost browns a little from bacon grease. salt and pepper to your taste. You may want to remove some of the bacon grease also if your bacon made a lot. It really gives it a good flavor though. After cabbage is done then put bacon back into pan and toss and serve.

I love fried cabbage. If you don't want to use bacon, its great with just some butter or olive oil. (
