Cabbage and Potato Bake

Total Time:
2 hr 30 min
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

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

I was searching for a new twist to my traditional potato/cabbage recipe. This was easy to put together and got rave reviews from every one of my dinner guests. I have already had to pass along the recipe! Also, I served it with a rotisserie white wine chicken and chedder cheese tea biscuits. Yum-O! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We made this for St. Patrick's Day, ate it with corned beef and it was perfect. Then we had it again the next day for lunch with sandwiches and it was possible even better! The only thing I changed was substituting red potatoes because I didn't have to peel them. We will make this often! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow !! I've heard that the key to a man's heart is in his stomach. Well, it works the same way for women too. My marriage has been a bit strained lately. My wife is a huge cooked cabbage fan. So, I decided that I would cook her some, and maybe ease the tension. I found this recipe and thought I'd try it. I told her to be hungry when she got off of work (2:30 PM). I cooked it up. After she got home, we waited and talked a little, while the "good eats" finished baking. It was smelling soooo good. A long story short, she loved it. I'm out of the doghouse. And, I believe Emeril, you have SAVED MY MARRIAGE !!!! Thank you for an absolutely delicious, inexpensive, mouth-watering meal. Oh, and corn bread goes well with this. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We made this last night for some friends to go with leg of lamb for dinner and it was a huge hit. I have had to copy this recipe several times already. A great side dish for veggies with wonderful flavor. I did add some carrots for color and used turkey bacon to decrease the fat. This is really a keeper! Thanks Emeril!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I found this recipe a couple of years back here on Food Network and made it for my annual St. Patty's day party. Everyone loved it! I had to give several people the recipe. It has become a tradition and a staple served at our party every single year. It is easy to make and serves a lot of people. Only change I made was cooking it about 45 minutes or so longer than the recipe as the potatoes were not done on the time table provided. This is a GREAT recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a fantastic recipe! It has quickly become a family favorite! We often cook this with corned beef and/or sausage.

Easy to prepare but I cut the recipe in half and the bacon I reduced to 1/4 of what the original recipe called for. Both my husband and I loved the flavor and the veggies were not mushy. Again, TOP NOTCH reciped! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I will never make another version of cabbage again. Not only is this superior in flavor, hands down, because it's baked instead of boiled your kitchen doesn't smell and neither do you! When I made this everyone politely sampled the cabbage and doubled up on the potatoes, then went back for the cabbage. At the end of the meal, there was no cabbage left. If I could find good quality corned beef all year long, this would be a standard in our home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did this for St. Patty's Day and it turned out pretty well. Better then having boiled cabbage but still not my favorite. It had a good flavot but the cabbage is softer than I care for anymore. (sauteed cabbage is the way to go) I must be getting away from my childhood roots because the bacon grease was a bit too much for me. You don't need that much. Just add the bacon and skip the grease. Tasty in small serving sizes. I could only eat this once in awhile. Artery clogging so go easy on it. Makes a lot so invite some friends to help you finish it off. All in all, the group was pleased with it. Definitely authentic. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I added baby carrots,used the liquid from simmering my corn beef and added 2 chicked boullion cubes,however I did only initially start with pouring in just a half a cup of liquid and adding a little as needed. Loved the bacon & onion drippings over it too. Thanks again Pat item not reviewed by moderator and published

I watched Emeril make this recipe back in 2001, and up until then we always just steamed our cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. I made it once, then it became a necessity every year. I end up making it about 10 times a year, we love it so much! Thanks Emeril! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this for several years now, and I think I may have figured out why it previously turned out delicious but over-cooked. This time, I cooked it for 1-1/2 hours at 300 degrees instead of 375- next time, I think I'll take it out after about an hour and check but the flavor is so wonderful, no one even really noticed that the taters and cabbage were slightly over-cooked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to do and delicious with corned beef. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy and tasted wonderful. One reader commented that it was mushy. We liked it that way, but you could cook it less if you like less done veggies. This would be great with many meats, and would also be a fun dish to cook on a campout in a Dutch oven over coals. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cooked this for 1 hr 15 mins at 350 because that's what I needed for the meat I was cooking and still found it to be way too done. The flavor was great, but the potatoes and cabbage were too mushy, even though I followed the ingredients exactly. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Since I got this recipe from Emeril's page and saw him make it I have made it quite a few times. It is a simple dish with simple ingredients that add up to great taste and enjoyment.

I was looking for a recipe like this as my grandmother use to make this all the time and I didn't have her recipe. I'm so happy to have found this -- very tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I fixed this instead of putting the cabbage etc. in with the corned beef. MUCH BETTER!!! I did tweak the recipe just a little bit. I used half a head of cabbage and 4 potatoes. I also put some carrots in with it. I didn't pour the bacon drippings over it either. I know pork fat rules Emeril but I wanted to cut some of the fat out so the only drippings that went in were what was scooped up with the bacon and onions. I would definitely make this again. Yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you only try one thing new on your St. Paddy's table, this should be it. Retire the overcooked, boiled, mushy mess of throwing the cabbage and potatoes into the corned beef! I'll never go back! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've fixed this at least half a dozen times plus for my best friends on our annual getaway and everyone loves it. In fact, last summer on one night, with no prior communication three of the four of us fixed this recipe - to which we add seared country-style pork ribs - on the same night for dinner ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
