Braised cabbage with kielbasa and apples

What to do with a half a head of leftover cabbage? Hmmm. Chef Google recommended braising. And, who knew? It’s delicious! Here’s my version…

Braised cabbage – sounds like a hot mess, but it’s actually delicious!

Braised Cabbage with Kielbasa and Apples

You’ll need:

  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 c water
  • ½ head of green cabbage, chopped
  • 1-2 apples, diced
  • ½ to 1 ring of kielbasa, halved lengthwise then sliced into 3/8” slices
  • kosher salt

Do this:

In a large skillet, heat butter over medium high. Add cabbage and stir frequently until light golden brown. Add water, apples and kielbasa and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes. Do not overcook. Serve with baked potatoes. (I suppose this would be good served over rice, too.)

If you try it, I’d love to hear about it!
