Ingredients

  Onion 1 , diced
  Bacon 1⁄2 Pound
  Garlic 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), minced
  Packed brown sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Fry the bacon and reserve the bacon drippings. Then remove core from the cabbage, slicing the cabbage into thin strips. Pour the bacon drippings into a large deep skillet. Heat the drippings over medium-low heat and then add the onion and garlic. Cook until lightly browned. Add the brown sugar and sliced cabbage. Crumble the bacon and add to the cabbage mixture. Cook the cabbage about 10-15 minutes until the cabbage is wilted. Add salt and pepper and serve.

Alternatively you could combine all of the ingredients and add them to a slow cooker. First cook in the slow cooker on high for 30 min and then set the slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours or until crispy-tender. Serves 4.
