Spicy Southern Cabbage and Kielbasa Skillet


  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 (14-ounce) package kielbasa sausage

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 medium green cabbage, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Melt butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. If you don't have a very large skillet, you will be better off using a Dutch oven. The cabbage takes up a lot of room before it wilts.

  2. Add onion and cook until crisp tender, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add sausage and cook until it is lightly browned.

  4. Add garlic and remaining ingredients. Stir to mix everything well. Cover and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. You may want to season with more salt, especially if you used reduced-sodium chicken broth.

***CSA TIP: This week you are getting Anaheim Peppers in your CSA! If I was you, I'd swap out the red pepper flakes for the fresh hot peppers. If you really, really like it spicy, try adding the hot peppers in addition to the pepper flakes!
