makes 3-4 servings
½ of a giant kohlrabi (~8” across), skin trimmed, cut into small cubes
2 rashers bacon, cut small
fresh cracked pepper
Chop kohlrabi into your preferred shape. Some recipes use slices, or strips, or even grated. I liked the little cubes. Make sure it is uniformly cut for even cooking.
Cook cut bacon in large sauté pan until it starts to render a little fat (on my old electric stove this took a few minutes). Add chopped kohlrabi and sauté a bit before adding just enough water (or braising liquid of your choice) to keep it from burning. Cover and let cook about 15 minutes, stirring regularly and checking for when it is just fork tender. We enjoyed ours more al dente than mushy. Generously add a few grinds of fresh pepper and serve hot.
