Braised Cornish Game Hens with Bacon and Cabbage - Instructions
Season the game hens generously on all sides with salt.
Warm the olive oil in a Dutch oven set over medium-high heat until shimmering but not
smoking. Add the game hens and brown on all sides, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Transfer the game hens to a large plate and set aside.
Reduce the heat to medium, add the leeks to the pot, and cook, stirring occasionally,
until slightly softened and translucent, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bacon and cook
until golden brown and fragrant, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook
until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the cabbage, lightly salt and toss to coat with
the bacon fat. Cook until the cabbage is slightly wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.
Increase the heat to high, add the wine and bring to a boil. Scrape the bottom of pan
