Recommended Posts

This was a bit of an experiment but a huge success. I was craving salty sweet bitter yumminess when I saw this thick cut bacon at whole foods and got inspired. Enjoy!




  • quarter head of cabbage thinly sliced
  • splash of balsamic
  • couple pinches salt, pepper, garlic
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 leek, whites thinly sliced
  • 2 slices thick cut bacon chopped
  • 4 oz shiitake mushrooms

How To

  • Cook bacon in a tsp of ghee in cast iron skillet over medium low heat
  • remove bacon when starting to crisp to paper towel lined plate
  • add a little more ghee, and add leaks with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a couple pinches of garlic
  • sauté leeks with a splash of chicken broth and a splash of balsamic vinegar, covered for 5 minutes or until softened
  • add cabbage and more liquid if it's drying, you don't want it to scorch or burn, cover and cook 5 minutes checking occasionally
  • add mushrooms, cover and cook 5 minutes
  • add bacon back in, serve warm
