What’s for Dinner? This cabbage and polish sausage dinner is a deliciously low carb one-pan dinner. It is definitely keto-friendly.

Cabbage and Polish Sausage Dinner

Growing up on a farm, I remember my Mom fixing fried cabbage almost weekly. She served it as a side dish to pork chops.

Cabbage and polish sausage dinner is a tasty, quick fix. 

Besides polish sausage, try any of the other smoked sausages or bratwurst in this dish.


  • 7 oz package of Polish Sausage (sliced into coins)
  • 2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/4 cup onion/pepper blend frozen seasoning mix
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cabbage, small or half of a large one shredded

If you don’t have Polish sausage, you can use any kind of smoked sausage or bratwurst.


Deep pot or an enameled cast-iron dutch oven. It is hard to beat cast iron for frying cabbage.

 Cooking the Cabbage and Polish Sausage

To enhance the flavor of the dish, I like to add the butter to the skillet and brown the sausage coins. I remove them to another platter. I add more butter to the pan and saute the onion mixture and the shredded cabbage. When the onions and the cabbage start to brown, I then add the chicken stock and cook until the cabbage is my desired tenderness.

Add the sausage coins, season with salt and pepper, and  bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.

There you have your one-pan meal.
