Fried Cabbage with Sausage - TSLCThis is a quick and easy dish and makes a meal served with my recipe for Southern Cornmeal Hoecakes or Fried Cornbread

1 stick butter or margarine
1 small head of cabbage, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped or cut into strips
1 small onion, chopped
1 pound polish sausage, sliced into round pieces (can use smoked sausage)I use Hillshire Farm.
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
few drops of hot sauce  (optional)
Melt butter in large skillet.  Add cabbage, onion, and green pepper and cook on medium high for about 5 minutes stirring to keep from sticking to pan.  Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.  Makes about 8 servings.  Enjoy!

  1. Beth, yes it is the same.

  2. Ms. Southern Ladies; I have to say this was delicious! Made no changes and the husband had three bowls, father had two and Mom and I had one. A favorite added to the list. Thank you.

  3. I made this dish , but i used bratwurst instead. Should i have cooked the sausage first. I didn’t but i made sure it was done before i ate it. Next time i will use smoked sausage.

  4. This is just as good leaving out the butter and tomatoes, using 1tableoon of bacon drippings, little water, cover and steam. Brown lean polish sausage in another skillet then Steve on top.

  5. I Have made this several times and have tweaked it just a bit, as much as I LOVE butter the family complained it was to much so now I do a little butter and a little olive oil that seems to cut back on the greasiness for my family. Thanks for a great recipe!

  6. I just got done making this. LOVE IT .!!! its a must try

  7. I am going to try this

  8. can you used red cabbage?

  9. I make this a lot and use Kielbasa Turkey Sausage. I put new potatoes, carrots and onion in it. We have corn bread, cottage chesse an fried apples. it is so good.

  10. Wow! This dish is fabulous. I made it tonight for dinner with rice and hot water corn bread baked in the oven. My husband loved it. Thank yu so much for sharing it Southern Lady

  13. Oh my gosh, I just found this site because a friend of mine sent me the link to the Zucchini Hoecakes recipe, which I went and bought the stuff for today. Now I have to make this cabbage recipe for Sunday dinner this week! I’m having a great time skimming through all of your recipes. Thanks for not only the recipes, but giving us print-friendly versions as well.

  14. I’m eager to try your cabbage n sausage.

  15. This was a hit at our house will make it often

  16. I’ve made this 2 times in the past month. I love it ! I cut up cherry tomatoes, and add a little baccon grease to the pan when melting the butter. Next time I will also add baccon pieces along ith the sausage. So yummy !!

  17. Do you drain the diced tomatoes or add them juice and all?

  18. Thinking of Patty working 12 hour shifts, we do this in the slow cooker and it is amazing for sure, then it is ready when we are…. Maybe even a double batch…

    • I have made this and we loved it so much that I am making it for our large family Thanksgiving dinner! I always try to come up with something new that I know my family will eat! I’m sure this will be a big hit!

  19. I am having this foe diner tonight. t looks real good.

  20. I made the cheese onion and bacon bread to go with the sausage and cabbage dish. Bet they will be great together. Cant wait for supper time. Thank you Southern Lady. Your recipes are wonderful and oh so comforting.

  21. This is a great recipe,how long will it keep if you leftovers?

  22. I work 12 hour continuous shifts at my job. I try to cook a few meals at a time on my days off so it’s easier for my handicapped mother, especially on the weekends. I just made this today for part of our weekend meal menu. It was AWESOME!!! I look forward to trying more of your recipes.

  23. I fix this at least once a month, but i also add fried choped bacon and sliced carrots & sliced hot hungarian peppers with boiled egg noodles to it as well…delish! Old fashioned Polish dish:)

    • OOO Thanks for your advice! I bet this would be good with some egg noodles! I’m adding that to mine! :)

  24. I can’t wait to try this…it looks sooo good! I just love cabbage so this is right up my alley! :)

  25. This is awesome!

  26. This recipe is delicious! So easy, and my husband loves it too!

  27. I’ve made this twice and skipped the green peppers and added boiled potatoes. Served it with chunky applesauce and cornbread. We all loved it! Thanks! Pat (married to a Corbin boy)

  28. Made this tonight it was delish! I used a can of Rotel in place of tomatoes because it was what I had on hand.

  29. Do you know the nutritional values? Thanks!

    • Hi Tiffany, I think you might be able to find some sites on the internet where you put in the ingredients and it will give you the nutritional value of the recipe. You might try that. Hope this helps.

  30. I can’t wait to make this for dinner tonight! Only I’m using a hot sausage instead of hot sauce. I usually make fried cabbage with bacon, and have never tried the bell pepper in it. But this recipe sounds so yummy! Thanx!! :)

  31. I just tried this and it is wonderful…however being the bacon lover that I am I cooked off about a half pound of bacon and added it right at the end so it wouldn’t be soggy. yummy!!!!

  32. being polish i have made this for years in various ways. BTW–if you can get it(i live in the Houston area), try Kountry Boy Sausage or Chappell hill both made in Brenham. you’ll never go back

  33. I think I may have cooked mine too long! Didn’t look as appetizing but flavors were GREAT! I added bacon an some bacon grease to mine.

  34. loved the fried cabbage and ”sausage””

  35. YUM!

  36. I use bacon grease, apples and mix in collard greens. Even kids love it.

  37. Cant wait to make this !!!

  38. Making this for supper tonight sounds wonderful!

  39. We made this today and it was realy good.

  40. I love all this. I am in hog heaven.

  41. as much as I adore the taste of butter, when I made this I used olive oil instead, solely because I am really trying to watch what I put in my body but the dish still came out fantastic! One of my husbands friends came over unexpectedly and just couldn’t stop talking about how good it was, in fact he made me promise to teach him how to make it! LOL

  42. tryed it tonight but added zuccini since i dont like green peppers and added stick carrots…..had it with sweet cheeder cornbread and boiled red potatoes …. talk about good

  43. I made this last night with a skillet of cornbread. I added a couple of grated carrots to increase the vitamin content! The consensus was DELICIOUS!! Really am. Enjoying going thru your recipes and trying new ideas! Thanks for your page! :-))

  44. Do you drain the tomatoes?

  45. We made this and it is a super yummy dinner.
    We just love all your recipes. Thanks for sharing them with us all.

  46. Sounds
    …..great. Wouldn’t that be delicious on hot dogs or brats at a picnic. I can taste it now. Oops, my fingers are working faster than my head! You’d have to eliminate the sausage and put it in the hot dog roll, or put the whole mixture in the bun.. I’d better stop now, think I need another cup of coffee :).

  47. This recipe was absolutely delicious!!! My 5 year old niece does not really care for cabbage, but she had two helpings of this. I will definitely fix it again!!!

  48. I fixed this tonight for dinner and we loved it!

  49. Yum, yum, this is such a tasty dish. Have made it before and now I am making it your way, thanks.

  50. I made this for supper last night with a pan of cornbread and it was wonderful. Another go to recipe. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe.
