German Sausage and Cabbage Supper

This is a simple but tasty dinner. The pre-packaged cooked sausages are easy to store in any boat refrigerator or cooler. Onions & potatoes can easily be stored in a cupboard and cabbage holds well in the cooler or refrigerator. I even store my cabbage under the floor boards in our sailboat and the temperature is as constant as a root cellar (if you are sailing up in the Pacific Northwest.)


16 oz lean pre-cooked Polish, German, or turkey sausage cut into ½ inch pieces.

1 tsp garlic, chopped.

1 cup fresh onions, chopped.

2Tbl cooking olive oil or Ghee

3/4  to 1 cup broth or water.

2 cups shredded cabbage.

2 cups unpeeled and sliced raw (about 1/4th inch thick) potatoes.

2 Tbl fresh cilantro or parsley flakes (died OK but add less)

Pepper to taste

In a large skillet quickly stir fry the garlic & onions for a few minutes until they are soft. Then add the cut up sausage and cook for another few minutes. After add the broth or water, cabbage, potatoes, cilantro or parsley, & pepper. Mix well to combine.  Lower heat, cover & simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.  Stir Occasionally. Serve immediately.
