Super Easy Sausage and Cabbage Dish

Polish sausage and cabbage iseasy and affordable. You can prepare this meal for less than $10!

Here’s all you’ll need:

  • Bacon
  • Turkey Kielbasa Sausage (cut into one-inch pieces)
  • Onions
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Cabbage (Pre-cut coleslaw mix is easiest)
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Spicy Brown Mustard or Stone Ground Mustard

Step One: Bacon and Sausage

I fry the bacon first so that you can use those awesome drippings for the rest of the meal.

Fry it till it’s crispy, then remove. Then, cook the sausage in the same pan and remove it when it’s crispy.

Step Two: Onions and Garlic

Next, you will carmelize the onions and garlic. Don’t drain the fat from the pan. Cooking the vegetables in the drippings will make them taste so good.

When the onions are carmelized they will turn a brown caramel color, and they will begin to have a sweet flavor.

Step Three: Cabbage

Once the onions are caramelized, add the cabbage, vinegar, and mustard to the pan. You do not have to remove the onion mixture.

The cabbage should cook very quickly, especially if you buy the thinly sliced strips intended for cole slaw.

The pre-cut cabbage saves a lot o time, but if you prefer to buy the head and cut it yourself, that is absolutely fine.

I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do!
