{ Sausage, Cabbage and Caramelized Onion Gravy }

On St. Patrick’s Day, everyone could use a meal with a little sausage and cabbage right? Well, I took this traditionally heavier recipe, made with mashed potatoes, and laid the sausage on a bed of green cabbage. With this dish you will be feeling light, lean and maybe a little lucky.

Ingredients: For 4

  • 2 packages turkey kielbasa sausage, chopped into large sections
  • 1 head cabbage, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 red onion, chopped into long strips
  • 2 T wheat flour
  • 2 T butter or coconut oil
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 T Salt
  • 1 T pepper
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 1 T seasoned salt
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth


1) Set your burner to low, and in a small saute pan caramelize your chopped onion. This should take about 30-40 minutes, so do this first and let it sit while you cook.

2) Preheat your oven to 400 and place your sausage on a roasting pan. Roast for about 40 minutes or until deeply browned on the outside

3) Place your butter/oil in a large pan over medium heat, saute your cabbage in the pan. Pour in chicken broth and vinegar. Season with garlic powder, salt, pepper. Saute until wilted to desired consistency. You can cover the pan to decrease cooking time.

4) Once your onions are caramelized, stir in your flour to coat, then brown sugar. Saute for a few minutes, stir in your balsamic, beef broth. Bring to light boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes. Season to taste. Add more broth if you like a thinner consistency.

5) Serve your cabbage, then sausage, then onion gravy on top. Top with seasoned salt if necessary.
