Pan Fried Coleslaw

This coleslaw turns out more like sauerkraut if you use all the vinegar. I am not a fan of vinegar so I decreased it to 2 teaspoons and really liked this side.

Pan-Fried Coleslaw



2 slices sweet hickory-smoked bacon

6 cups very thinly sliced green cabbage (about 1 pound)

1 tablespoon sugar

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

2 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon celery seeds


Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp; remove bacon from skillet, reserving drippings in skillet. Set bacon aside.
Cook cabbage in drippings over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently. Add sugar, vinegar, water, salt, and celery seeds, and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; crumble bacon, and stir into cabbage mixture. Serve warm.
