This is another recipe from the 1983 Southern Living Cookbook. To me this is real comfort food.
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup vinegar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 12 cups cabbage, coarsely chopped
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb Polish sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
- Sauté onion in butter in a Dutch oven over low heat until tender. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Gradually add water and vinegar; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.
- Stir in remaining ingredients. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
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.
