The Best Boiled Cabbage Ever


This is another one of those dishes where I don't have a recipe.  I will, however, give you my process for cooking my favorite way to enjoy cabbage.

2 small heads green cabbage, outer leaves removed
Water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 - 2 T. bacon grease

After removing the outer leaves of the cabbage, with a sharp knife, remove the cabbage core and quarter the remaining cabbage.  Then cut each quartered piece in half.

Put the cabbage chunks in a 3 or 4 quart Dutch oven or soup pot and fill with water until the cabbage is almost covered.

Add 1 - 2 teaspoons of salt and grind the black pepper over the top.  Add the bacon drippings and bring the liquid to a boil.  

Reduce the heat to simmer and let cook for 1 - 2 hours until the cabbage is very tender.
