Sausage and Cabbage


  • Dutch Oven
  • Kitchen knife
  • Cutting board


  • Skinless Italian Sausage 1 lb
  • Kielbasi 1 lb
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 pound potatoes of choice
  • 1 1/2 lbs turnips
  • 1/2 head cabbage
  • 5 Cloves garlic
  • 1 bottle hard apple cider
  • Brown sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Assembly Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350.  Heat 3 turns olive oil in dutch oven on medium heat.  Slice sausage into 2 inch cubes/sticks.  Sear the sausage in the oil.  While the sausage is searing mince the garlic and dice half of the onion, slice the other half and add to the pot.  Slice kielbasi into bite size pieces and toss into the pot.  Dice turnips into 1/2 cubes, rough is fine, toss into the pot.  Cut potatoes into 3 inch cubes or so, leave skins intact, toss into pot.  Cut cabbage into bite size pieces and add to pot until full.  Salt and pepper to taste, do not undersalt!  Dump the cider into the pot (beer is ok too).  Put in oven and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until done to taste, about half way through taste and sprinkle brown sugar on top and more salt if needed, the potatoes will soak some of the salt, as will the turnips, so it is better to salt as it cooks than all at the beginning.
