This is another recipe from the 1983 Southern Living Cookbook. To me this is real comfort food.

Spasiba! This was truly great Russian tasting comfort food. I served the cabbage recipe over egg noodles. And, to include all the Russian National Vegetables in one meal, we had beets and a cucumber salad as sides. My boys (born in Russia) loved it all. I did cook the sausage in a bit of water for a couple of minutes before adding them - that way, I removed some of the fat.

I have never taken the time to write a review, but I cannot stop eating this! Simple, easy and very good.

I was really happy with the result of this recipe. I searched for a different way to serve some cabbage and sausage instead of the boring same ol taste. I tried this and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I loved the taste and I used a really sweet onion and it brought out the flavor even more. I boiled my cabbage in chicken broth and it took any bitterness out of the cabbage too. I recommend this recipe. I loved it.
