Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
Recently, I shared a coleslaw recipe with you and I made mention of something that I make with the extra cabbage. I thought I would share with you all that lovely recipe today.
When I buy the ingredients for my coleslaw, I tend to buy far more cabbage than I need. Mostly because I use two different kinds of cabbage, the purple and the green. I also go ahead and buy heads of cabbage that are far bigger than I could ever possibly need. Since I am not a wasteful person, it’s time to cook dinner.
Onion, roughly chopped
In a very large pot, over medium high heat, add your butter and a dab of olive oil.
I do a rough chop on an onion and toss that in the pot. I give a good stir and put in a tiny pinch of salt. This helps the onion to better release it’s juicy, delicious flavor.
While the onion takes a sweat break. I chop my sausage into nice bite size pieces and set that off to the side.
I move on to my garlic. I like to only slice my garlic for a dish like this. Since this is one of those dishes that it is going to simmer for a good while, I want my garlic to hold up through the cooking process. I toss those slices in with the onion and give it a good stir.
Once the garlic and onion have had a moment to mingle in the pot, I toss in the sausage and cook that through.
While the sausage is getting it’s sauna on in the pot, I start working on that massive amount of cabbage. I question how I could have even remotely thought that I needed this much cabbage while I give this cabbage a good choppin. I make sure that I chop it into delicious bite size pieces.
Once the sausage is done being pink, I squeal with glee and throw in my cabbage. I give a decent stir and add my salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. I give the cabbage some time to sweat it out, followed by adding a bit of chicken stock to the pot to give some moisture.
I toss a lid on the pot turn the heat down to medium low and simmer for at least an hour, or until the cabbage is tender.
Sometimes, I will cook a bit of white or brown rice to go with this. More often than not, I bake up some cornbread and go to chow town on this delicious dish that will also serve as lunch the next day and dinner. This is a great meal that will serve a family cheap and good.
Come back tomorrow for my Mom’s version of this recipe!
