A vinegar and soy sauce dressing gives this cabbage dish a tangy flavor that is only enhanced by salty, crisp bacon.


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 4 slices bacon, cut crosswise into ½-inch pieces

  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 medium head green cabbage (3 pounds), cored, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • ¼ cup cider or rice vinegar

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high and cook bacon, stirring, until browned and crisp, 6 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a plate. Add onion and cabbage to pot and cook, stirring, until cabbage is wilted, 10 minutes. Add vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce and cook until cabbage is crisp-tender, 10 minutes. Stir in bacon and serve.
