That is the secret right there. I got this from the Texas grocery store H.E.B., but I’m sure you could order it on-line. It is soooooooo good. It’s not spicy either. I don’t do spicy. Spicy and I are not on good speaking terms. I got this recipe from H.E.B., too. The grocery store often has people showing off their culinary skills in the middle of the store. I pretty much buy anything they are giving samples of in their little kitchen stage area.
“We’ve got delicious horse meatballs for you right here! Just dump in a pan and simmer for 15 minutes! BOOM! DINNER!”
Me: “I’ll take two packs.”
The recipe is simple.
First, cut up the cabbage, but not your fingers. The recipe does not call for blood droplets.
Second, fry 8 ounces of bacon in a pan. Remove the bacon, but keep the bacon grease in the bottom of the pan. I make bacon in the microwave on a little special bacon plate. I just poured that grease in the pot when I was ready to cook the cabbage.
Third, combine the cabbage and hot bacon grease. Cook that together for a few minutes.
Fourth, pour about half of the bottle of Robert’s Reserve Roasted Habanero and Pineapple Sauce over the top. Don’t let it cook together much longer after that. I would serve it right away, because I am not a fan of mushy, wilty-looking cabbage. It starts reminding me of sauerkraut then and sauerkraut and I are not on good speaking terms either.
Oh! How could I forget?? Crumble up the bacon and toss it back in!
