This Easy Cabbage and Sausage Skillet is an easy low carb dinner that is keto, dairy free & gluten free! Protein and veggies in one bowl!
Cabbage and Sausage
If you’re looking for an easy dinner that is keto diet friendly and is also a great vegetable sausage stir fry, you have to try my Easy Cabbage and Sausage Skillet! A simple dinner for busy weeknights or even St. Patrick’s Day!
While this is one of those quick meals that you can make for the whole family, it also has some additional benefits. Cabbage is especially high in Vitamin C, so not only is it a tasty recipe, but your family won’t even realize it’s good for them.
Another huge benefit of this simple dish is that it fits so many diets. This is keto, paleo, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and Atkins friendly, so it should be a great option for all kinds of guests. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
This great recipe can be served as a main dish or a side dish, since the cooking time is so minimal, you could serve something else alongside it. Totally your choice!
If you can’t get your hands on a large head of cabbage, you can use a different type of cabbage. See if you can get a small head of green cabbage (and maybe use two), but you could use purple cabbage or even napa cabbage as well.
Cabbage and Sausage Recipe
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp butter
1 lb andouille (or spicy) sausage
1 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 small onion, chopped (I used yellow)
1 cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
Pull out a large cutting board and knife. Chop up your onion into small pieces and set it aside.
Pull the outer leaves off of your cabbage if they are a bit wilted. Wash and then chop up the entire head of cabbage. You’ll want these to be coarsely chopped with pieces that aren’t too small, but also not sliced cabbage wheels.
Cut your sausage into slices. Halve each slice so that they are bite-sized pieces.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and oil and heat until the butter has melted.
Add the onions, sliced sausage, raw cabbage, and chicken broth to your skillet.
Cover and cook the mixture until the cabbage has softened slightly, about five minutes.
Remove the lid and season with salt and black pepper to taste, keeping it in the large non-stick skillet.
Continue to cook until the sausage is done, about 5 to 10 minutes depending on your choice and thickness of the sausage. Serve hot and enjoy!
Can I Use A Different Kind Of Sausage?
Yes! This cabbage skillet calls for andouille sausage or spicy sausage, but if you want to opt out of the spicy, choose another kind of sausage. You could use a smoked sausage, kielbasa sausage, polish sausage or even a turkey sausage in this dish. If there is an easy sausage for you to pick up at your grocery store, it may turn out a little different, but it will still be delicious.
