Any ol' cabbage will do BUT a tear-drop shaped variety called Gora Mae is the BEST I've ever eaten. Discovered it at our local farmers market.

The kind of pan you use is important. First, it's got to be BIG to handle all those cabbage wedges. And you've GOT to have a tight-fitting lid to get a good steam going. Don't use a non-stick pan; you want that sausage sticking so you get the enhanced flavor of deglazing with the vinegar.

You can serve this as a side, but I usually make a meal of it, paired with cornbread, a sliced ripe tomato and a tall glass of iced tea, southern sweet, of course.
