I sautéed 1 large onion and 4 clove garlic first in pan. Then added sausages, ( I used Turkey Sausages Instead of kielbasa). Brown all and set aside. Then I added cabbage to the same pan. I shredded mine. "Then instead of beer, I added a cup of masala cooking wine, black pepper, no salt as sausage already have salt in it. After cabbage cooked down, I added browned sausages, onion and garlic...YUM .Let all simmer together for another 15 minutes. YUM, YUM. Pictures to come. HAPPY COOKING Read More

Although this is ok it's very bland. Easy to take to 4 stars with a few adjustments. Added 1/2 of a sautéed onion seasoned salt red pepper flakes garlic powder and a little bit of caraway seed. Kept covered while simmering stirring occasionally. This was a really great dish after adjustments were made. Read More

The recipe needed some tweeting: added a whole chopped onion sautéed before adding cabbage for 5 minutes, added garlic power and red pepper flakes when adding the cabbage. Also added two tomatoes (seeds removed) chopped to the last 5 minutes of cooking. Read More

I've been making this for years, minus the beer (using water instead) because we don't drink. This is a favorite, that my grandma use to make. It is a very southern dish. I think a lot of people are missing the simpleness of the recipe. It is meant to "just" be cabbage and sausage, not with all the extra "stuff." Slap some cheese on that cabbage after it's cooked and serve it with corn bread. Mmm! Delicious. Read More

This was fantastic!! Even my 3 yr old thought it was delicious Yes this is simple and easy. I used a light beer because that's what I had on hand although chicken stock would be a great option if you wanted something other than water. I did add an onion only because I like those flavors together. I saw one review that recommended not using salt and pepper...taste your cabbage just before you serve and make any adjustments then. I also cooked everything together until all the liquid was gone. Served with O'Brien potatoes. Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. took advantage of suggestions to enhance flavor. Will definitely make again. I added red pepper flakes garlic powder seasoned salt and used turkey sausage. I did not drain liquid but let the beer cook down. Delish. Read More

honestly my kids didn't like it, my husband and I loved it. I added onions and garlic when sautéing the sausage which happened to be turkey. Then I saw where someone added sugar and I have seen my gram do this. I fully planned on doing the same until an idea hit me. The turkey sausage was a little sweet, so I added honey to the cabbage. Tasted great without an over powering sweet taste. I will make this again. Read More

I added some peeled and chunked potatoes, onion and carrots, just because. I also added some apple juice, caraway seeds, garlic salt, bay leaf and a scant pinch of red pepper flakes. A peeled, cored and diced apple would be good instead of or in addition to the apple juice. Serve with lots of good mustard of your choice. Read More
