In this side dish, sherry vinegar adds a tangy taste to the cabbage and cuts through the richness of the pancetta

  1. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  2. 3 ounces thinly sliced pancetta, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  3. 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  4. One 1 1/2-pound head of Savoy cabbage, finely shredded
  5. 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the pancetta and cook over moderate heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the pancetta to a plate.
  2. Add the onion to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the cabbage and pancetta and cook, stirring, until the cabbage is tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the vinegar, season with salt and pepper and serve.
