3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons bacon fat
1 small green cabbage, chopped
1⁄2 cup onion, chopped
1⁄2-3⁄4 lb smoked sausage, sliced (I like Conecuh, Original)
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained (I like Hunt’s Petite Diced)
1⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt, to taste
1⁄4 teaspoon Tony Chachere’s Seasoning, to taste (optional)
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Chop/slice the sausage, cabbage, and onion.
In a large non-stick skillet, pre-cook the sliced sausage about 3 minutes to render some of the fat out. Remove sausage from skillet and drain on paper towels if needed. Set aside. Wipe the skillet clean.
In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add cabbage and onion and cook and stir on medium-high for about 5 minutes, until cabbage starts to wilt.
Add remaining ingredients, and the sausage.
Cover the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes.
Uncover, and finish cooking until cabbage is desired tenderness and most of liquid has been reduced.
1 lb. ribs (beef or pork)
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. white vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
Boil ribs for 1 hour. In a separate bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and brown sugar. Stir until dissolved. Add the baking soda (it will get foamy). Add ribs and turn to coat. Pour into baking pan and shake garlic salt onto. Bake for 1 hour, turning every 20 minutes.
Position an oven rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cayenne, and black pepper.
Arrange the bacon slices in 1 layer—not overlapping—on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Bake the bacon for 20 minutes. Turn the slices over, and sprinkle them evenly with the spiced sugar. Continue baking until the bacon is crisp and deep golden, about 20-35 minutes more, checking every 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain before serving.
