Polish Sausage with Red Cabbage

Sarah Ford


Great comfort food for a cold night! My husband begs for this. It's easy to prepare and very filling.

10 Min


45 Min


1 1/2 tsp
maggi extract
sugar and lemon juice to taste
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp
1 1/2 tsp
1 c
red wine (or strong broth)
polana's old country sausage-starowiejska or 6 polana's polish-style veal wieners
1 small
head of red cabbage
sour cream

Directions Step-By-Step

Shred cabbage, blanche, and sprinkle with lemon juice or vinegar to restore color. Brown the butter, blend in flour, and slowly add the wine, stirring until smooth. Add cabbage, season with salt, pepper, Maggi extract, sugar and lemon juice to taste, and simmer tightly-covered for about half an hour. When nearly done, add the sausage, cover, and continue simmering for another 15 minutes.
Serves 4. (Meat may be added in greater proportion to cabbage, if desired.) Tastes great with sour cream dolloped on top!
Can be enjoyed alone, but I recommend serving with meat, cheese, and/or mushroom pierogies or uszka, which I submerge in the bowl with the cabbage, sausage, and broth.
