German Sausage and Cabbage

Welcome to Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits and guest blogging again with Grocery Shop for Free!  I hope you will link up your latest cooking experience (which can be anything) at the bottom of the post.  Or maybe you can share one you read about that we might enjoy.  Make sure to link back. :)

Today is baby day for our family.  #5 grandbaby is making her way into the world.  She is the #1 child for my #3 child.  Can’t wait!

On to recipes, I was trying not to go to the grocery store the other day.  I only had fresh cabbage and then a lot of canned stuff.  I have to admit that I am spoiled to fresh veggies.  So, I found 3 jalepeno and cheese, German style sausages in the freezer.  I don’t remember when I put them there (yikes) but I had an idea that it was in November or December.  I decided to cook one to see how it tasted before I added them all to the recipe.  They were awesome!


1/2 head cabbage 
3 small potatoes
1/3 jalepeno
1/3 onion (I used some I had frozen…so about 1/2 cup)
3 German sausages (these were not long ones but the kind that is the length of a hot dog and fatter) 
1 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
Frank’s Hot Sauce

Sausage Cabbage Skillet Recipe

(I forgot to take a photo and found this one on Allrecipes that looked like mine.)

Saute the onions and jalepenos in the olive oil.  Since my onions were frozen when I threw them in pan, they took a while and produced more liquid.  So I used that to help cook the cabbage.  So, after the jalepenos and cabbage were tender, I added the garlic cloves and cooked for 1 minute.  Then, I added the sausages and cooked them until they were browned.

I removed the sausages and added the cabbage, covered the pans and simmered for about 25 minutes.  I sliced up the sausage and threw it back in the pan and let it stew in the cabbage.

After chopping the potatoes in bite size pieces, I steamed them In another pan with a steamer basket until tender.  All I did to season them was to sprinkle them with salt and pepper.  These were tasty by themselves because steaming potatoes bring out their flavor but I served the cabbage and sausage over the potatoes. 

After it was on the plate, I mixed in some Frank’s Hot Sauce to kick it up a notch.

One of my friends stopped by and she had some dinner with us, which was such an unexpected treat.  At one point, I looked over at my husband and he had beads of sweat on his forehead.  My dad used to say that if it didn’t make you sweat, it wasn’t hot enough.  I guess this was hot enough with the Frank’s Hot Sauce added.  YUM!
