• Fry until the bacon goes crispy and remove, leaving it to the side for now.
• Leave the tasty bacon fat in the pan and add your onions in.
• Increase the heat to a medium heat and then, after 2 mins, chuck in your cabbage and then your brown sugar.
• Cook for another 5 minutes, or until the cabbage has gone tender (remember to keep stirring!)
