This is an easy weeknight recipe that we make often. I use fully cooked sausages - either Brats or Kielbasa.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the sausages and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the beer and mustard and simmer until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the cabbage, stir to combine, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir again and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes until the cabbage is wilted but still green.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Excellent recipe. Followed the recipe with a couple tweaks. I added 1/2 c sliced mushrooms, 1/2 c sliced onion, and 1/2 t caraway seeds. Oh so delicious!

I made this for our dinner tonight although Russ wasn't too keen on the whole idea. I think he expected the beer would be too over powering, but he gave in and I made it any way! We both decided this was REALLY delicious and so very simple to make. I used raw links-Spicy Sicillian Sausages-which I cooked completely before slicing then into three pieces and continuing with the recipe,. My cabbage wasn't a green one, so i added some chopped parsley to finish the dish and brighten it up a bit. Thanks so much for a great comfort dish we will be making again soon.
