Southern Cabbage is an easy southern side that goes great with chicken and pork and makes a wonderful addition to a holiday meal. Cabbage is slow cooked until tender in chicken broth flavored with bacon and onion, plus a few red pepper flakes if you want some heat.
Southern Cabbage is one of my very favorite foods ever so I enjoy making it even outside of the holiday season. It is supposed to be a side, but to me it’s a main dish because whenever I make it or see it on a buffet, it’s the only thing I want. I think most cabbage lovers can relate.
If you try out this recipe, I’d love to see! Be sure to use #CollegeInnBroth in social media.
