Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 slices turkey bacon chopped
  • 1 medium-large onion thinly sliced into half-moons
  • 1 1/2 pounds green cabbage sliced into thin shreds (about 1 small head)
  • 1 large clove garlic crushed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water plus more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose-flour
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 handful fresh parsley leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat the butter in a large deep-sided skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the bacon and cook until crispy, about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the crisped bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain off excess butter.
  • To the same skillet, add the onion, cabbage, garlic, salt, black pepper, and water; cook (covered) until the cabbage is tender, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a splash of water if the pan starts to get too dry.
  • Add the flour and cook 1 minute, then add the milk and cook about 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Turn off the heat and stir in the bacon.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and top with the parsley, if using.

Notes

  • Low Carb and Keto Version: Omit the flour and milk. Once the cabbage is tender, add 1 cup heavy whipping cream and cook until steaming (do not boil). Transfer to a serving dish and top with the parsley.
  • Paleo Version: Omit the flour and milk. Once the cabbage is tender, add 1 cup canned light coconut milk (or full-fat for a richer dish) and bring to a simmer. Transfer to a serving dish and top with the parsley.
  • To Make This a Full Meal for 4 People: Add 1 (16 oz/450 g) can rinsed and drained white beans when you add the milk.
