Fried Cabbage And Sausage Recipe

We love simple one-pan meals. We always make this fried cabbage and sausage recipe. With simple ingredients, sausage and seasonings, cabbage is cooked until soft but crunchy.  

– ½ pound seasoned sausage – 3 ½ cups green cabbage – salt and black pepper to taste  – 1-2 tablespoons cooking oil – 1 teaspoon brown sugar – A splash of water – 2 teaspoon butter



To fry, cut cabbage into thicker slices with a sharp knife. Or cut the cabbage into larger cubes. To make thick slices, cut the cabbage in half and remove the core.

Slice one half into 1 ½ inch thick pieces. For cabbages too wide like mine, I cut the longer slices in half later. Slice it into thick cubes instead.

Sliced cabbage can be sautéed or fried. Brown sliced sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat with oil. Remove to sideplate.

If there are too many browned bits, use a paper towel to remove them before deglazing the skillet with water. Add some oil, chopped cabbage, salt, pepper, and sugar.

Add a few splashes of warm water or broth if needed. Just to expedite. We want cabbage to be crunchy, not soft.

Taste and add seasoned salt, creole seasoning, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, or a garlic clove if needed. Stir in butter until melted.

Return the sausages and simmer for two more minutes. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve as a side or main course with rice, potatoes, or salad.
