Sausage, potatoes and cabbage -

I did not take any pictures, but it turned out so well that I wanted to tell you about it. I was just throwing a meal together at the last minute.

Sausage, Potatoes and Cabbage

1 pound smoked Eckrich skinless sausage
1 Tablespoon lard
5 potatoes
1 head cabbage cut into 4 pieces
2 cups water

Cut the sausage into 1/2 inch slices.
Melt the lard in a heavy bottomed kettle (I used my cast iron Dutch oven)
Fry the sausage slices until they start to get sort of brown on the cut sides
Add 2 cups of water
Cut the potatoes into nice chunks
Add them to the pan
Place the cabbage quarters on top of the potatoes with the cut side up
Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for 20 - 30 minutes or until the potatoes and cabbage are tender
Using a slotted spoon, dish up into large bowls or onto plates, leaving the liquid in the pan.
Serve with salt and pepper on the side

Serves 4 and it's really delicious!

I saved the broth in the refrigerator to use for soup stock.

Cabbage is traditional New Year's Day fare here in the USA. This would be a good, quick, and easy way to serve it!

I linked this recipe to Wardeh's Tuesday Twister at GNOWFGLINS!


  1. We make this but add some sliced bell pepper and onions sometimes. Lots of fresh ground black pepper and at times some ground cumin. This dish is so easy and soooo good isen't it! Love it! Sarah
