Sweet & Sour Cabbage with Bacon

Postby BookSaver » Thu Nov 14, 2013 9:18 am

Here's a quick recipe from theboatgalley.com The Boat Galley Cookbook (Carolyn Shearlock & Jan Irons). I tried it last night and it was so good and simple, I'm putting it in rotation for camping meals.

My notes: I used olive oil in my cast iron skillet, chopped the Canadian bacon and onion, and used twice the amount (8 C) of coleslaw mix (from a Sam's bag) since we both like cabbage. I used the original amounts for vinegar & brown sugar because I knew the carrots in the bag mix would add sweetness, too. Served with soy sauce. DH liked it enough that there are no leftovers for my lunch today. :(

Sweet & Sour Cabbage & Bacon -- serves 2
2 tsp oil
6 oz Canadian bacon
1 C sliced onions
4 C shredded green cabbage
1 1/2 T white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
dash of pepper
Heat oil in skillet. Add bacon & onions; saute until browned. Stir in cabbage. Add remaining ingredients and cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until cabbage is tender and liquid has evaporated.
Substitutions: regular bacon, Spam, ham, hot dogs; cider or balsamic vinegar
If you're using regular bacon, don't use the oil.
If using mushrooms, saute them with the meat and onions.
If you don't have brown sugar, use the same amount of white.
Add other veggies such as shredded carrots, or use coleslaw mix.
