If you’re not a fan of sauerkraut, then fear not, this recipe tastes nothing like that. The flavor does, however, have a German kick to it thanks to the caraway seed and the mustard. I wrote this recipe using a deli-style mustard, but if you have a different, favorite type of mustard, like a stone ground, German style, Dijon, or anything other than a plain yellow hot dog mustard, by all means, use it. What the mustard does is infuse a little bite and acidity to the cabbage, which helps to cut through all the richness of the cream and balances all the flavors nicely.
Another thing you may, or may not want to do, is switch out the sausage. I used a Polska kielbasa when writing this recipe. However, if you prefer a smoked sausage, bratwurst, or even hot dogs…feel free to substitute. *Note – If you do decide to use a sausage that is not already pre-cooked (like a bratwurst), please make sure to add additional cooking time to ensure that the sausage is cooked thoroughly.

- 1 head cabbage outer leaves removed, and cored and sliced into ¼" - ½" slices
- 1 medium red onion chopped
- 1 tablespoon grape seed oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 pound pre-cooked sausage like a Polska kielbasas, or smoke sausage, cut into 1" pieces
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1½ tablespoons caraway seed
- 2 tablespoons deli-style mustard
- 3 tablespoon heavy cream
- Heat a large, high sided skillet over medium/high heat.
- Add the oil, butter and cut sausage to the skillet.
- Saute the sausage for 2-3 minutes, and add the chopped onion.
- Stir well and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
- Add at least half of the sliced cabbage to the skillet along with the salt and pepper. Stir.
- Cover the skillet and cook for approximately 10 minutes.
- Remove the cover and add the remaining cabbage, stirring to combine.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 5 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to medium/low.
- Stir in the caraway seed, mustard and cream.
- Cook for additional 2-3 minutes, plate, and serve warm.
If substituting something other than a pre-cooked sausage, add additional cooking time to make sure the sausage is cooked through.
Substitutions for the deli-style mustard may be used. German style, whole grain, Dijon, etc. Yellow hot dog mustard is not a good choice as it is too strong.
I’ve decided to pair this recipe for 30-Minute Caraway Creamed Cabbage with Sausage with this hand painted set of #HotMess wine glasses. The reason being that the colors are similar and the glasses somewhat coordinate with the finished dish. But, more importantly is that I feel like a #HotMess when it comes to video production. HaHa. True story!
