Bacon Hot Slaw (THM – S)

This recipe has been a favorite of mine since my lovely mother in law made me her, non THM version years ago. I would always ask her to make it when we had a family gathering. Since adopting THM the sweet brown sugar that’s in her recipe was out for me, as well as her added carrot that I could do without.

So it was time to tie on the apron and figure it out THM style with the addition of caraway seed, and apple cider vinegar and I am so happy I did! It turned out better just as good (tee hee) as I remember. 🙂


This is such a great meal for any occasion that calls for the savory blends to wake up the pallet.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! <3

Bacon Hot Slaw Ingredients S THM
5 slices of Bacon (chopped into bite size pieces)
1 lb of ground pork
1/2 medium onion sliced thinly -OR- 1 tsp Onion Powder ( to make this dish a Deep S)
1 pound of a mix of green and red cabbage sliced thinly
3 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp of Caraway Seeds
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Sea Salt
2-3 Doonks of Stevia (or sweetener of your choice)


Fry 5 slices of thinly sliced bacon in a large fry pan. Oops a few pieces of red cabbage found its way into my fry pan 🙂
Add Ground Pork to Bacon and Fry until cooked.
Drain Bacon and Ground Pork mixture and set aside.
Simmer onion in 1/4 cup of water, until liquid is fully evaporated.
Prepare Cabbage while onion simmers any way you like it. I’m a bite size kinda girl, but long thin slices works great as well.
Add apple cider vinegar, caraway seeds and sweeteners to cabbage mixture.
Once cabbage has softened add bacon and pork into the cabbage mixture, stir well and allow to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.
Serve and Enjoy!!! 🙂

Cooking Instructions-

*Cut up Bacon into bite size slices and fry in large frying pan until translucent.
*Add Ground Pork to the Bacon and cook both until done. Drain the meat and set aside. Save drippings in fry pan.
*Add thinly sliced Onions to the fry pan with the saved drippings, and cook until softened ( I added 1/4 cup water to simmer at this point, simmer until water is gone).
*Add your thinly sliced Cabbage to the Onions in the frying pan and mix well.
*Add the Apple Cider Vinegar, Caraway Seeds & Sweeteners and allow the mixture to cook for about 5-7 minutes until cabbage noticeably softens.
*Season Cabbage with Salt and Pepper
*Add the set aside cooked Bacon and Ground Pork and mix well.
*allow to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until you notice some edges of cabbage browning.

Eat on its own as a filling and satisfying S meal.
Serve over rice for those not on THM(kid tested and approved)

With Love,

  1. This looks fantastic! Always looking for new cabbage recipes since its so cheap and so good for you!

    1. Awe thanks Dolly! I feel the same way! It’s a home run in this house. My hubby and kids LOVE it. I think it’s one of our favorites <3

  2. I can eat bacon and ham but all other pork products disagree with my stomach (don’t ask me, I can’t explain! I know its weird). Would this still be a deep S if I used ground turkey? I’m thinking that would probably take on the flavor of the bacon better than beef??
