Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onions and Garlic

I think most cooks have a favorite way of frying cabbage.  I actually tend to use smoked paprika nowadays because my kitchen tends to have more of it on hand, but regular paprika is how I used to make it.  I use my heavy stockpot because a head of cabbage starts out pretty big but some people have Dutch ovens equipped to handle the load.  Do what works for you.
