Fried Cabbage



This used to be one of my favorite vegetable dishes that my mom made when I lived at home. I think she would like mine, too.  So good! It’s really good with bacon, too.

Fried Cabbage


  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 -1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • one cabbage head, sliced or chopped
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp and 1/3 cup water
  • kosher salt
  • pepper


Cook onions and garlic in olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add cabbage, sugar, and 3 tablespoons of water. Mix well. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on top. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 20 minutes.  Stir frequently. Drizzle more oil over cabbage if necessary. Add more salt and pepper to taste as cabbage cooks.  Add 1/3 cup cup of water; cover and cook over medium low heat until cooked to your liking.
