This is the easiest meal anyone could make! I learned how to make this from my first mother-in-law many years ago. The marriage didn't last, but the recipe did! As a young bride, I wanted to make good meals and this dish was a favorite!

1 small
cabbage (or 1/2 of a large one) coarsely chopped
4 large
potatoes, cut into quarters (can leave the peel on if desired)
14 to 16 ounce pkg of your favorite sausage cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks (polish, kielbasa, smoked, bratwurst, etc) i use smoked beef sausage
1 c
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c
coarsely chopped onion (optional)


1Place all of the ingredients as listed into a pot or a skillet with a tight fitting lid. Bring to a good simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low for about 40 minutes...longer if desired. Stir occasionally during cooking to incorporate the flavors. Add a little more water if needed. The cabbage and potatoes should be fork-tender. You can simmer this on low for a longer period if desired, but it can be ready to eat in less than an hour! The flavors will mix throughout the dish and will taste wonderful!!
2Enjoy this dish with a jar of good horseradish! YUMMMM! You don't have to be German to love this!
