Sauteed foods are a favorite of mine. When you saute something, this means that you cook it quickly in a pan over high heat. This is a common cooking method for meats and vegetables alike.
Sauteing allows the food to retain its natural juices and flavors, while also giving it a nice crispy texture.

How to Cut a Head of Cabbage
If you’re wondering how to cut a head of cabbage, wonder no more! Here’s a quick and easy guide to get the perfect cabbage slices every time.
First, start by cutting off the bottom of the cabbage head. This will help it sit flat on your cutting board and make it easier to work with.
Next, cut the cabbage in half through the core. You can then cut each half into quarters or eighths, depending on how thick or thin you want your slices to be.
Once your cabbage is in quarters or eighths, start slicing it into thin strips. Be sure to hold onto the end of the cabbage as you slice so that it doesn’t fall apart.
And that’s it!
Let’s move on to the rest of the recipe!
Next, chop up or dice the onion.
Fry 4 strips of bacon in a large frying pan and then chop up. Set aside. (I recommend using this jumbo cooker! We cook just about everything in it!)
Sautee the chopped onion in remaining bacon fat.
Slowly add cabbage, stir and add more cabbage as cabbage cooks down.
Add salt and pepper and serve!
