Frizzled Cabbage is my recipe of the day. No  blogging group today so I will be  posting this one  solo. Which  doesn’t  happen  as often  since I participate  in so  many  groups.  But once  in  awhile. I  do  enjoy  posting  along  with  my food blogger  peers and  friends.

Frizzled Skillet Fried Cabbage

As  Autumn continues  through  mid  December,  I find the  availability  of  green cabbage at  the  markets to be  fabulous. This is  a  great time to  put up kraut,  make cabbage  rolls and fill our  kitchens with the  aromas of soups and stews with cabbage,  bok  choy, kale, and others.

Cabbage is  really  economical as well, if  you  enjoy eating  on the  cheap. Rather than eating  it  just plain,  a few simple ingredients can  add loads of flavor  as well  as help  minimize that cruciferous smell.

The  best part of skillet cabbage  is that  it  tends to  smell  less  anyway  since the  water  vapors aren’t carrying it  everywhere.

Kept crisp-tender, this frizzled cabbage dish  has all  the  attraction of hot  slaw  or  coleslaw. Serve it with  pan  fried pork chops, ham,  meat loaf or whatever is  on  the menu.  It is very  versatile.
