You people haven't seen "Onion Goggles" before?
OK, It is hard to add humor to bacon and cabbage, so I had to show you a pic of me in my onion goggles (thanks Sunshine Grandma).
Last week our visit to to CSA, Bread and Roses Farm, produced a head of what I believe to be Napa cabbage. On my drive home I was trying to figure out dinner and what I could come up with using our newly acquired farm fresh produce. A mental checklist started to materialize:
Bacon - check
Cabbage - check
Onion - check
Garlic - check
Diced Stewed Tomatoes - ohhh I hoped
As luck would have it, the diced stewed tomatoes were a "check".
Ingredients: As above...although, I guess I should add how much and what to do to the ingredients before frying them up, like a pissed off Killer T-Cell hot after our children's insulin producing and secreting beta cells.
Bacon (1/2 a package)- chopped up in like 1 inch pieces
Napa or Asian Cabbage (1/2 head) - chopped thin
Yellow, or what have-you onion (about 1/2 medium bulb) - diced
Garlic (4 cloves) - minced
Diced Stewed Tomatoes - one 15 oz. can
Directions: Cut up bacon into about 1 inch chunks and fry, stirring occasionally.
Once the bacon is cooked and crisp, add in the onion and garlic, fry until the onions soften.
Now add in the can of diced, stewed tomatoes and the chopped cabbage. Cover. Cook on medium until the cabbage becomes limp (like a beta cell defunct pancreas).
Serve in a bowl with hearty bread. This flax bread recipe goes well with this hodgepodge of a goulash.
Joe loved, loved, loved this recipe. He told me that I have the best "imagination" ever to come up with it on the fly. I actually just tweaked my friend Susy's recipe which is essentially the same ingredients, but it uses ground turkey or beef for the meat source.
Nutritional Information: SWAG it baby (thanks Lorraine). I carb counted it at about 6g/cup, which worked well with Joe's current dinner ratio.
A day-in-the-life living as a bacon and cabbage savage.
