Fried Cabbage and Sausage


  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 12 oz Garrett Valley Farms Andouille Sausage (sliced thinly)
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 1/2 large Onion (diced)
  • 1 medium head Cabbage (shredded; 8 cups)
  • 1 14.5-oz can Diced tomatoes (drained)
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt (to taste)


Heat the oil in a large saute pan or braiser pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, until sausage is browned and renders fat. Transfer to a plate, leaving the oil in the pan, and cover to keep warm.

Wipe down the pan and add the butter.

Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the onions to the pan and cook for 8-10 minutes, until soft and starting to brown.

Add the cabbage. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the cabbage is starting to wilt near the bottom of the pan.

Uncover and stir. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until cabbage is slightly wilted but a little crisp-tender.

Add the drained diced tomatoes, cajun seasoning, salt to taste, and cooked sausage. Increase heat to medium-high.

Stir fry for 3-4 minutes, until cabbage is wilted and extra liquid has evaporated.
