As we prepare for up to 6 more inches of snow followed by our first arctic blast of below zero temperatures my mind turns to hunkering down to a nice hot fire in the fireplace and tasty warm food in my belly.
There’s plenty of wood in the wood racks.
My almost world famous Coca-Cola pot roast is in the oven. (See Ron’s Rambling December 11, 2020 post Legalized Pot Roast.)
However, a great pot roast takes hours to cook and I’m hungry now. What to do, what to do?
I’ve got it! Northern Fried Cabbage with Spicy Sausage and Bacon. I know, I know. Fried cabbage is a southern thing. Hey, if Wisconsin can claim Brett Favre as our own, we can also claim fried cabbage as our own.
Here’s R Dub’s version of this southern delight.
1/4 lb chopped bacon
1 small head green cabbage chopped
1 medium onion chopped
1 lb Spicy Sausage
15 oz crushed tomato
1 tbs Pork Rub
1 tsp Seasoned Salt
3 tbs Avocado Oil
Fry sausage and cut into slices
Fry bacon until crispy
Add 2 tbs of avocado oil
Saute chopped onion until caramelized
Add 1 tbs avocado oil
Add chopped cabbage
Season with pork rub and seasoned salt
Saute until cabbage is al dente
Stir in sliced sausage
Stir in crushed tomato and heat through.
