Smoked Sausage And Cabbage Recipe
How To Make:
1/2 red onion, medium, sliced
1/2 green cabbage head, cut into small pieces
16 oz smoked sausage, sliced
5 oz can mushrooms
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt & pepper (to taste)
Take out a cutting board and a sharp knife. Slice your red onion and set it aside.
Remove the outer leaves from your large head of cabbage and cut half into small pieces. Set the chopped cabbage aside. (If you can only find a small cabbage, use the whole thing.)
Slice the smoked sausage into pieces.
In a large deep skillet over medium heat, pan-fry your smoky sausage for about 6 minutes or until you have nice browned edges on your sausage pieces. Remove them from the non-stick skillet and set them aside.
In the same large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add your chopped onion. Cook them for 5 – 10 minutes or until they are translucent using a slotted spoon or spatula.
Add the raw cabbage and the entire can of mushrooms and sauté everything until tender. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Add the sliced sausage and continue to stir everything for a couple of minutes until it is hot and well combined.
Serve hot and enjoy!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Can I Use Anything Other Than Smoked Sausage In This Cabbage Skillet Dish?
Yes! The smoky flavor adds an element to this dish, so hopefully, you’re able to find various kielbasa sausage or polish sausage (such as Polska kielbasa) at your local grocery store. That said, you can substitute andouille sausage, Italian sausage, turkey sausage, or chicken sausage if you’d prefer. You may want to add some red pepper flakes or cajun seasoning to enhance the flavor if using turkey or sausage, as their flavoring can be milder, but the sausage is an easy ingredient to swap out with this simple meal.
Can I Make This An Even More Hearty Dish?
Yes! If you want to add something else to this cabbage and sausage recipe, boil some large potatoes. Chop them up into pieces, season them with some salt and pepper for a little flavor, and add them to the skillet meal. You could also add some sliced bell pepper if you want an additional vegetable.
