What Is Fried Cabbage?
It is a common Irish side dish that is made by pan-frying cabbage with onion, garlic, and basic spices. This side dish is served predominantly with corned beef. Also, it became very popular in the United States lately, where it got some variations to it. Southern bacon fried cabbage is a popular alternative to the traditional Irish version.

A cabbage core is typically tough and not optimal for eating, so you’ll want to remove your cabbage core before proceeding with the recipe. To core the cabbage, cut your cabbage head in half and use a knife to slice around the core to remove it.
