Get that bacon nice and crispy until it turns golden and crunchy. Put it aside for now; we’ll come back, to it later.

Drain most of the bacon grease. Leave a bit for some flavor.

In the pan melt some butter until it becomes smooth and frothy.

Let the cabbage cook down for 8 minutes. It will shrink down. Become glossy.

Reintroduce the bacon.
