I love one pot skillet meals. That’s because everything is done in one pot meaning there’s less dishes to be washed afterwards. My large skillet is the perfect vessel for these one pot meals such as Low-Carb Beef Fried Cauliflower Rice and Easy Chipped Beef Gravy.

Smoked Sausage and Cabbage

Let’s be real. It can be a challenge to get my kiddos to eat their veggies. When one kids likes a dish, the other two don’t.  This recipe was a home-run for all three!  My eight year old said, and I quote “Mommy, I could eat this all day long.”

I chalk it up to the delicious sauce that forms with the combination of butter, the natural juices of the vegetables, chicken broth and seasoned salt.  This pan-fried cabbage meal is going into my regular menu rotation.

Notes about the recipe:

  • You can dice the vegetables and smoked sausage as big or little as you like. I chose to cut mine on the smaller side to speed up the cooking times.
  • The amounts of vegetables are fairly flexible. For example, if you have more cabbage and less carrots, it’s not a big deal.  Don’t like potatoes? Add extra cabbage instead. You get the picture.
  • I actually made this before church on Saturday afternoon.  Then I turned off the burner and covered with a lid.  When I got home about an hour later, I heated it back up.  It was perfect!
  • We love cabbage recipes at These Old CookBooks.  Try Cheesy Cabbage Casserole, Sweet and Sour Coleslaw, Low Calorie Cabbage Soup, and Instant Pot Boiled Kielbasa Dinner.
  • Be sure to watch your butter in the first step.  If you have the burner turned up too high, your butter could burn and start to form brown chunks. Yuck!
  • This recipe is easy to customize.  For one, you could swap out chunks of leftover ham for the smoked sausage.  Or, you could also swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth or even water.
  • If you do use some type of broth; be sure to use low sodium.  This allows you to control the salt content.  Vegetables require quite a bit of salt.  Taste at the end and season appropriately.
