Excellent cabbage and kielbasa recipe, full of home town flavor. Made as written with a couple of changes, I omitted the cayenne pepper, used a red onion and added sliced Baby Bella mushrooms, once everything was sauteed I poured in a bottle of Guinness Extra Stout and let simmer for 40 minutes covered and the final 10 minutes uncovered, which produced a nice sauce and a great meal. Thanks. Made for Mommy Diva's Cook-A-Thon 2012 ~ Fight Like a Girl!

Wimps, beware; but chiliheads, rejoice! :) I'd never made this with andouille before. Turning it into 'Cajun Cabbage' really did it for me. Was it ever spicy -- and delicious! The stores here all carry it in 12-oz. pkg. instead of 16-oz., so I was a little short on the sausage but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. However, the amount of meat didn't seem skimpy at all. In fact, if using a whole pound, I'd increase the cabbage. Thanks for sharing, and you keep fightin, girl!!

Really delicious cabbage dish. Easy to make and uses ingredients I usually have on hand. I'm not a spicy food person but the amount of heat from the cayenne was "just right" for me. Made for Mommy Diva's Cook-A-Thon 2012 ~ Fight Like a Girl!

This is so incredibly yummy!! My Mom used to make this when I was little and I always loved it but couldn't remember how to make it. This was exactly the same, I'm so glad I made it! I used a Kielbasa because I know that's what my Mom used to use and I didn't add the cayenne pepper because I have small children who don't like spicy foods. It was wonderful! I made it with a homemade sweet cornbread and it was a perfect compliment to it. Thank you!!

I love how simple the ingredients for this recipe are. I recently made this a few months ago when looking for something new to try. My boyfriend isn't a fan of cabbage, but he LOVED this dish. I'm actually making this for the second time - for dinner tonight.
Thank you for sharing this recipe; I will be making it for years to come.

Easy and delicious meal. I made cornbread to go with this. My family gobbled it up! We will make this again and double the ingredients

My DH said make this again. He doesn't say that much. I made it as written and loved the spice in it. I had to use turkey sausage because that is what was here. But it was still wonderful.

I make this same thing, except I use low fat turkey sausage and do not quite cook it as long so that my cabbage is a little more "crunchy." You can add your favorite seasoning during the browning of the sausage to give it a little zing (I like cajun seasoning, I don't use the cayenne). It's good with white beans and cornbread!
