Quick & Easy Spicy Fried Cabbage

Updated on April 13, 2014
4 stars from 2 ratings of Fried Cabbage

When I was eighteen I went to Indiana to meet my father for the first time. I wasn't just meeting him, I was also meeting my half-sister, step-mother, and other assorted relatives from his side of the family. Needless to say I was a little apprehensive on the flight over. It was my first time flying on top of everything else. Once I got there I was happy to find that it felt just like I was visiting family - which I was.

One of the things that stands out from that visit was the fried cabbage my step-mother Linda made while I was there. I had never had cabbage, did not think I was going to like it, and was pretty sure I was not going to try it. I was surprised by the peppery smell and decided to give it a try. It tasted great. This is my version of that recipe. Her recipe only had the first four ingredients, but I added a few more and made her peppery fried cabbage spicy.

Note: Add thinly sliced onions for a slightly different flavor profile, or, for a slightly sweeter version, add grated granny smith apple and serve with pork chops or pork tenderloin.
