1 green cabbage / remove head of cabbage and cut into thick pieces and then smaller and set aside
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp avocado oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp smoked paprika
Start by adding the bacon to a non stick pan over medium heat. The bacon will need to cook until you see it is juicy and crunchy. This takes about 3-5 minutes
To the same pan add the cabbage, butter, onions and oil on medium heat and stir for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add your smoked paprika. Continue to cook with frequent stirring until the cabbage is golden with a soft texture. This process takes 7-9 minutes. And voila!
Serve while it’s hot and enjoy. This meal is also freezer friendly for up to a month with no problem, but we doubt that will be an issue.
