Braised cabbage with leeks and maple

Braised Cabbage with Leeks and Maple
2 T bacon fat
1 leek, white part only, cut into 1/4" slices
1/2 head red cabbage
1 T maple syrup

Melt the bacon fat over medium-high heat and then add the leeks. Stir
a few times as the leeks cook. When they begin to brown, add the
cabbage. Continue to stir occasionally as the cabbage cooks. Cook
until the cabbage is wilted but still slightly crunchy, about 8
minutes. Add the maple syrup and stir once more to coat the vegetable
