  • Cut 1 pound of smoked sausage into half moons.
  • Add 2 tbsp of butter to a skillet and add the cut sausage. Sautee over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes or until the sausage is lightly browned.
  • While the sausage is cooking, remove the outer leaves from a head of cabbage and cut it in half. Remove the hard core by cutting a wedge into the cabbage around the core.
  • Working with half the cabbage, cut the cabbage into 1/2-inch slices, then cut again across the slices creating small squares of cabbage. You need about 4 cups of cabbage.
  • When the sausage is browned, add the cabbage and stir well. Add the dehydrated onion flakes and garlic powder. Turn the heat to medium and continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cabbage has shrunk and is tender.
  • Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
