  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small head green cabbage, cut into quarters and shredded
  • 12 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/21 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  2. Add the onion and cook until translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the cabbage, vinegar, and pepper flakes, stir well, and cook until the cabbage is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, stir in the reserved bacon, and serve.
