Cabbage with caraway and bacon

Side Serves 4 30 min
Bacon and cabbage are both excellent paired with caraway – the seeds give an aromatic lift to this simple, satisfying side. Try this with pork sausages and mash for a classic autumn dinner.

  • 4 bacon rashers, cut into strips
  • 1 small to medium cabbage, shredded
  • 2 tsp caraway seeds
  • salt and pepper

    In a large frying pan, add the butter or oil and fry the bacon until cooked through.
