Braised Cabbage with Sausage

Another recipe for you. And it's healthy too!

I recently found Melissa of Satisfying Eats. She has published a cookbook with all of her sugar-free & grain-free recipes... and they all have raving reviews! So far i have only made this one. I know CABBAGE seems like a strange one to go for FIRST, but i had a head of cabbage on hand. And sausage. So, it was only logical. 

If you hate cabbage, give it a chance? Maybe you just had it wrong? I always HATED cabbage until i had my mother-in-law's! It is delicious! And this recipe makes really yummy cabbage too! It's also quite possibly the easiest recipe EVER. :)

BRAISED CABBAGE with SAUSAGE

1 lb. smoked sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 head of cabbage, roughly chopped
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons of butter
cajun seasoning*

In a large frying pan, brown sausage on medium heat on both sides for about 10 minutes.


After sausage is browned, add cabbage & water. 

 Well, first you have to chop your cabbage!


Cover and reduce heat slightly and cook for 10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes. Check for desired doneness of cabbage. Add butter & seasons. 

 YUM! 

*cajun seasoning: Melissa has her own cajun seasoning, which is a mix of black pepper, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, paprika & oregano! Let me know if you want the exact recipe, and i can email it to you! Otherwise, you can use Tony's or whatever cajun seasoning you have on hand. :)
