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.
- 5 slices bacon
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 medium head cabbage, cored and coarsely chooped
- 2 cups College Inn Chicken Broth
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
- black pepper
- Cook bacon in a large pot or Dutch oven until crispy. Remove bacon from pot and set aside.
- Leave about 2-3 tablespoons of bacon grease in the pot. You can save any excess bacon grease for another use.
- Cook the onion in the bacon grease until soft.
- Add cabbage, chicken broth, and red pepper flakes. Cover pot and simmer for about 10 minutes, opening it to stir once or twice.
- Remove lid from pot and cook uncovered for about 15 minutes. Turn up the heat a little so you get a good amount of evaporation.
- Season to taste with pepper. If desired, add a little salt.
- Crumble the bacon and mix it into the cabbage mixture. Serve in small bowls with with the broth.

Good mornig love cabbage I will let you know how they teast🙂🙂🙂🙂
I changed two things. I used one large onion and added four minced garlic cloves after the onions cooked for a bit.
Oh, and I doubled the bacon. This was a hit!
Yummy I used turkey bacon instead
So easy and good, reminds me of the cabbage my Mom and Nanna made when my brother and I were kids. I cut up turkey bacon and sauteed it in 2 tbsp of oil before cooking the onions. Only problem is I should’ve made more. I’m trying the dressing next for some more feelings of nostalgia.
This rating is for your cabbage dishes. They are sublime, I too love cabbage and really feel the flavors in your recipes. Thank you.
Love it, I added green pepper sliced and thinly slice carrot strips along with the onions. Great this is a keeper.
Omg , this was awesome!!!! Better the next day. And both my daughter and I said I have to make it again. Yummy !!!
Can you use vegetable broth instead of chicken brother and turkey neck instead of bacon.
Stacy Weather have a valid concern of which I also share. Will someone please give advice. Thank you.
I love cabbage but have never thought mine was anything special. I searched and found yours, and I’m so glad I did!! It was wonderful and so easy. I didn’t have any bacon thawed, but I did have the drippings (always!). It was great, even without the bacon! Thanks so much.
My kid & I loved it. 🙂
No onion listed in ingredients on recipe.
How much onion??
Sorry, I fixed it.
Tastes Amazing! The site would be great though if we had less pop ups and advertising. I would search for more recipes.
I made the southern Fried cabbage for dinner last night and it was fabulous! I used a small head and added some chopped red onions to some olive oil and softened a little. Then added the broth and seasonings. Cooked it probably a little longer than the recipe called for but we like the browned parts of the onion and cabbage. Definitely a keeper, glad I found this recipe!
How much onion? It’s not listed in the ingredients. We love cabbage and I am interested in trying your version.
I. Too, want to know how much onion.
I gave up on seeing a reply, so I just used a medium sized yellow onion, chopped.
At least 1 cup diced onion. Myself, I love onions & added more.
The Cabbage was great. Thank you for sharing.
