2 head of cabbage
6 slices salt pork (about 1 to 2 inches in length)
Bacon Drippings--1/2 to 1/3 cup
2 small onions
1/2 large green bell pepper
red pepper flakes (to taste)
Put about 1/2 inch of water in a large pot, place the salt pork and red pepper flakes in the pot and simmer slowly about 15 minutes. When the water begins to evaporate pour about 1/4 cup bacon drippings in pot. Slice the onions and bell peppers in thin strips and place in the drippings.
Remove the outside green leafs from the cabbage heads, rinse and lay them in a pile together on top of one another. Slice the leafs in coleslaw type strips and place in the simmering bacon drippings and cook until they begin to wilt and soften .
Cut the rest of the cabbage head in half and slice the same way as the outside leafs. Rinse and place in the pot after the large leafs have begun to cook. Cook for 1/2 hour or to your preference for doneness. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
