Total Time:

Prep:
30 min
Cook:
2 hr

Yield:
6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 cabbage, about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds
  • 2 large Idaho potatoes, about 2 1/2 pounds
  • 12 ounces lean bacon, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 cups yellow onions, peeled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups homemade chicken stock, or canned, low-sodium chicken broth
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Rinse the cabbage under cold running water and remove the tough outer leaves. Cut the cabbage into quarters and remove the hard core. Cut the cabbage quarters into halves and place, rounded side down, in a roasting pan.

Cut the potatoes in half crosswise and peel. Cut the peeled potato halves into quarters, and arrange in the roasting pan, alternating with the cabbage pieces.

Fry the bacon in a heavy medium skillet for 7 minutes. Add the sliced onions, salt, and black pepper to the pan and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Evenly distribute the bacon mixture and pan drippings over the vegetables, then pour the chicken stock on top. Tightly cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours.

Remove the pan from the oven and allow to sit, covered, for 15 minutes before serving. Serve the vegetables with the bacon and broth spooned over them.

I cooked two ham hocks the day prior with onions & garlic in my slowcooker and used this stock in place of chicken broth. I used the meat in place of bacon and added addition cubed ham after frying it up.....yummy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the only way my family will eat cabbage....with bacon, anything is good right??? The only thing I do differently than the recipe is I add baby carrots to the pan while it bakes....It makes a big difference colorwise, it looks better and the sweet carrots accompany it all very well!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was very good, but I save my 5 stars for dishes that blow me away. I added dice ham along with the bacon. Easy side dish to throw together. I would definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was looking for a recipe for cabbage because we needed to start eating vegetables with Vitamin E in them and came across yours Emeril. The bacon and potatoes appealed to my 13 year old son, but he has NEVER had cabbage before. I let him be the first to taste it and he finished the whole thing! Needless to say we've found a good recipe for cabbage. (I used the low sodium broth as I have high blood pressure and it was still great. Being a single parent it was very economical too. Thank you very much : D item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just loved it. Kicked it up a notch and used pancetta instead of bacon, just had to add that Italian flavor. What a great way to use cabbage and potato's not only healthy but economical at the same time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was absolutely the best. My husband loved it, he said that's not just good it was great. I followed the recipe exactly except I did not use as much bacon due to dietary issues. Fast easy and delicious! Made it for New Years and making another batch today! item not reviewed by moderator and published
