Bacon and Kale Braised Cabbage with Perogies

This simple recipe is mighty flavourful, easy to make, and economical! Can easily feed a family of four. What family doesn't love bacon and perogies? 

If you don't like perogies, you're insane in the membrane. Insane! Got no brain.
That's right, I said it!

But, if you don't want or don't have perigees, you can make this recipe as a side dish. It would be a nice accompaniment to sausages or pork chops.

Bacon and Kale Braised Cabbage with Perogies


Ingredients:

1 lb nitrate free bacon, sliced into small strips (you can also substitute 1 lb ground sausage)
1 head green cabbage, sliced thin
1 yellow onion, minced
2 garlic cloves
1 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
1 C chicken or beef broth
1 bunch black kale, stems removed and sliced thin
perogies
1-2 tbsp butter

Directions:

In a dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy (if using sausage, cook until there is no pink). Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Leave behind 3 tbsp fat.

Reduce heat to low-medium. Add onion and cook for 7-10 minutes (until transparent). Add garlic, salt and cabbage. Pour broth over cabbage and cover for 15 minutes. Add kale and stir in. Cover for another 5 minutes (or until kale is wilted).

Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil. Add perogies and boil until they float. Drain water. 

In a fry pan, melt butter and fry perogies until slightly golden and crispy. Stir and flip often to avoid sticking. 

Dish plate with cabbage and top with fried perogies.
