My Father originated this recipe and I have perfected it. Everyone I have made this for absolutely loves it and begs for more. My wife likes this more than chocolate.
- Mix cabbage, onion, sausage, and bacon bits in a heavy pot.
- Melt the margarine in a saucepan.
- Pour the melted margarine over the ingredients in the pot.
- Cook over medium heat.
- Cover and stir occasionally until cabbage is smothered to your liking.
- Serve over hot white rice and enjoy the explosion of flavors.
Excellent! Better than my grandparent's soul food Mississipi/Alabama recipe for smothered cabbage!
I fried the bacon instead of using bacon bits and used the bacon grease instead of margarine. This is my non vegan meal for the weekend and was totally worth it. I also had to add a lot more salt and red pepper flakes.
Very, very good! Even better the next day! Loved it!
I did the recipe ALMOST exact. Instead of adding the melted butter. I threw a butter stick in the pot (with the cabbage, onion and sausage) without being melted. Medium heat. Let it simmer for quite a while. I LOVED IT! I made cornbread biscuits to go with it. Yummilicious!
