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
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.
