Looking for a low carb side dish for Thanksgiving or holiday cooking? Try this Braised Cabbage with bacon and Michigan Honeycrisp apples! You won't miss the carbs after trying this Keto and Whole 30 friendly dish.
Preheat oven to 375º. Coat a casserole dish with cooking spray.
In a large skillet, add chopped bacon to the dry skillet. Turn heat to medium. Allow bacon to crisp up, stirring frequently.
Once bacon is cooked, remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Put on a paper towel covered plate.
In the bacon grease, add chopped cabbage. Stir quickly to coat. Add garlic, onion and apples. Continue to cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until everything is softened.
Pour mixture into the casserole dish. Add chicken stock and season with paprika, pepper and salt (use salt sparingly, since bacon is salty!). Stir and cover.
Bake for 40-45 minutes covered, stirring occasionally. Return bacon to dish, stir and bake for an additional 10 minutes uncovered.
Remove from oven when the dish is a caramel color. There will be a little remaining liquid, which is fine!
