  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. When it's hot, add in 1 tablespoon of butter, and the sausage pieces, then sear to your liking. Once the sausage is cooked to your preference, remove it from the pan, and set aside. Don't drain the pan, and add in the remaining butter, your onions, and garlic with a pinch of salt. Cook until softened, then add in your cabbage.
  • Add in your seasonings to toast, moving around with your spoon for about 1 minute. Then, pour into your broth or water, and add the sausage back to the skillet. Cook on medium heat until cabbage is softened, and the beef broth is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes minutes. At this point, adjust the seasonings to your preference, and take it off the heat.
  • Garnish with parsley if desired. Enjoy your fried cabbage and sausage!
