How to make cabbage and bacon

Cabbage and bacon is a classic Irish meal that generations of people in Ireland have tucked into for centuries.

The meal was traditionally popular in Ireland as the ingredients were easy to come by.

It is a meal that can be cooked slightly differently in every home, depending on the tastes of any given person and the ingredients they have to hand.

It would usually consist of cabbage and bacon (of course) along with potatoes and a selection of vegetables such as carrots, peas, cauliflower or several other combinations.

Ironically, given that it is a dish so associated with Ireland, the video we have chosen features an American who picked up the recipe in England.

However, it is a famous American – John Ratzenberger who played Cliff Claven in the TV comedy series Cheers – and he does a great job with the classic Irish dish.

Ratzenberger has somewhat modernised the recipe – there is not a potato in sight – but it still looks great.
