Brasied Cabbage With Potatoes And Smoked Sausage (1)

My Braised Cabbage With Potatoes And Smoked Sausage, in a somewhat simpler style, is a dish I grew up eating. My mom made cabbage and potatoes as a side dish never as the main meal. She always added salt pork to flavor the dish. Now, don’t get me wrong, it was delicious I just thought I’d update the dish and make it a complete one-pot meal. I’m leaving out the salt pork and adding smoked sausage along with a few other ingredients. Full of flavor, my Braised Cabbage With Potatoes And Smoked Sausage is a delicious one-pot meal.

When making a one pot meal, I like to have all my ingredients ready. Let’s start with getting the prep done for this dish.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Yields: 4 to 6 servings
Equipment: 12-inch deep sided frying pan with a lid, serving bowls, Chef’s knife

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups smoked sausage, smoked turkey sausage, or kielbasa, 1-inch pieces (cut lengthwise then cut the halves lengthwise in half, next, cut them across into quartered half moons)
1 large head of cabbage, core removed, sliced very thin
1 1/2 cups of green onions, sliced thin (reserve green tops for garnish, slice the tops on the bias)
3 cups carrots, (cut the same as the smoked sausage)
4 cups 1 inch cubed Yukon gold/red potatoes
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Fresno chili, seeded and minced
2/3 cup unsalted chicken broth
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
2 tablespoons fresh Italian flat leaf parsley, finely chopped (substitute 1 tablespoon of dried parsley flakes)

Directions:
First, have all the vegetables prepped. Have the pan preheating on medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. Drop in the diced onions, diced carrots, minced garlic, minced Fresno chili, Kosher salt, and freshly cracked black pepper. Stir and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the green onions, fennel seeds and toss those through. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Next, add the diced smoked sausage to the vegetables, continue stirring. Next, top with the cubed potatoes and toss through.

Next, add half of the sliced cabbage. Toss the cabbage through with the hot vegetables allowing the cabbage to wilt down, another 2 to 3 minutes. Once that’s happened, add the remaining cabbage and repeat. Season with a sprinkling of Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Pour the chicken broth and apple cider vinegar over the cabbage. Place the lid on, turn the heat down to medium, and cook for 30 minutes.

Remove the lid, increase the heat to medium-high, cook uncovered for another 10 minutes or until the pan juices evaporate and the cabbage just starts to brown.  Add the green onion tops and finely chopped parsley.

Ladle into porcelain bowls and serve hot.
