Step 1

Heat oil in a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crisp, stirring frequently.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer bacon to a plate. Add onion and cabbage to pot and cook, stirring often, until cabbage is wilted, about 10 minutes.

Add vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce, and cook until cabbage is crisp-tender, about 10 more minutes.

Stir in bacon. Serve.
