Simple Southern boiled cabbage that will turn cabbage haters into cabbage lovers.
boiled cabbage, southern
medium sized cabbage
cut into bite sized chunks
or to taste
chicken broth, or a combination of both
In a large pot, add enough water/broth to fill the pot half way.
Turn heat to medium high and let the water/broth come to a boil.
Add the bacon grease, salt, and cabbage to the water and bring to a low boil.
Cover with a lid and let lightly boil for 20 minutes; stirring occasionally. You’ll want to taste test for doneness. I like my cabbage to be pretty soft but it’s a personal preference.
Most Southerners I know also add a pinch of sugar. I try not to eat too much sugar, but if you feel something is missing, feel free to add a bit.
