Cabbage and Sausage Recipe



cabbage recipes


I love cabbage.  If you're a fan, here's a recipe that you must try.  Did you know that cabbage is great for your health?  It's actually considered to be one of the best health foods.

Besides being delicious, here a few reasons to try this recipe:  


  • Cabbage contains the least fat and the fewest calories of any vegetable
  • It helps lower cholesterol
  • It's loaded with Vitamin C
  • It's a great natural source of fiber
  • It's a great source of antioxidants  
  • It’s expensive to eat 
 Now that we have the health benefits down.  Here's the recipe: 

  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 small head of cabbage, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 pound polish sausage, sliced into round pieces (I use smoked sausage)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes  (Pull out a quart of your canned home grown tomatoes and chop) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 of chopped green pepper
  • few drops of hot sauce (optional)
  • chopped garlic clove (optional)
Melt butter in large skillet. Add cabbage, onion, and green pepper and cook on medium high for about 5 minutes stirring to keep from sticking to pan. Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.  Season to taste. 
Note:  I brown my sausage in the oven and have it ready to add to the simmering ingredients.  I found the recipe rather bland, so I added garlic.  Serve with diner rolls and apple sauce.   Makes about 8 servings.
