Cabbage with Sausage

Ingredients to make this dish:

  • Small Cabbage Head: you can use green cabbage or napa cabbage. 
  • Oil: olive oil to keep tht shredded cabbage moist and crisp. 
  • Onion: adds flavor to this cabbage, white onion is definitely needed. You can use shallots or red onion if you prefer. 
  • Fresh parsley: this adds such a wonderful flavor to the cabbage that you will always want to add it in your cabbage dishes – a great marriage of ingredients. Dried parsley will not deliver the same fresh taste. 
  • Fresh Garlic: the fresher the better. It is best to use fresh garlic with fresh vegetables. The taste and aroma are different than using garlic powder.
  • Seasonings: this dish is seasoned with salt and pepper. You can easily use other spices and seasonings you have on hand. Such seasoning may be Noubess Garlic and Herb Seasoning or Italian Seasoning.
  • Sausage: a smoky sausage is best for for flavor. You can also use your preferred brand of sausage. For this recipe we use Uncured Polska Kielbasa Smoked Sausage Rope from Hillshire Farm. It is Gluten Free, not Preserved, contains no Nitrates or Nitrites, contains no Fillers, made with pork, turkey and beef, naturally smoked, and with natural casing. We usually find this product at Costco.

How to shred the Cabbage

  • Remove any torned outer leaves.
  • Cut the cabbage in half or in quarters.
  • Carefully cut out part of the core in each wedge and discard.
  • Using a cutting board and a knife, slice into thin shreds (similar to cole slaw size) that are about about 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide.

How to make Cabbage with Sausage

There’s not much to do as both cabbage and sausage compliment each other. Smoky and salty sausage cooked with crispy but still tender cabbage is one of the best way to get your family to eat their vegetables. Here’s how to make this cabbage dish

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet to hole the shredded cabbage over medium-high heat.
  • Add the sliced sausage. Pan-fry the sausage slices, frequently flipping, for 1 to 2 minutes or until brown on both sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet. 
  • Add and sauté the garlic for about 1 minute – do not burn the garlic. Add sliced onion, shredded cabbage, salt, pepper. Stir to mix. Let the cabbage mixture cook, occasionally stirring, until cabbage is slightly too tender but still crispy, about 7 – 10 minutes.
  • Add the sausage slices back to the pan and stir until combined with the shredded cabbage. Cook for another 3 to 5 minutes and until well blended. 
  • Add a few drops of lemon juice and parsley.
  • Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if needed. Toss well to combine.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Notes and Tips

  • You can use green cabbage, napa, or savoy cabbage.
  • Use lemon juice or flavored vinegar to bring out the flavors of the cabbage a bit more. The lemon juice or vinegar helps tone down the sulfur odor that it gives off when cooked. The longer the cabbage is cooked, the more sulfur.
  • Use your preferred uncured sausage, preferably one that is smoky in flavor.
  • Use other spices or seasonings for different flavors.
