Smoked Sausage & Cabbage Skillet Supper



 
I confess most Sundays when we get home from church I am absolutely starving.  It will have been at least 8 hours since I have gotten up and probably about 6 since breakfast so about that time I could just about eat anything.  If I have been smart and planned ahead, I will have dinner waiting for us in the crock pot.  If I haven't, I will have to resort to looting the cupboards and refrigerator to see what I can come up with quickly. You might feel the same way any day of the week actually, especially if you have been out working or shopping all day! You want something to eat and you want it now!
 
I had a grandmother who could make a meal out of just about anything.  I'm happy to say I have inherited her ability to do the same thing.  I had a package of smoked sausage in the refrigerator, a white cabbage, a bag of new potatoes, and some onions in the cold storage beneath the stairs.
 
I chopped up the cabbage along with some onion, in nice large chunks, and then I cut the smoked sausage into half moons.  I peeled the new potatoes and popped them into a saucepan of lightly salted water and brought them to the boil. (If you are really feeling lazy you don't need to peel them, just wash them really well.)
 
I heated a splash of light olive oil in a skillet and then threw in the smoked sausage, browning it all over.  I scooped it out to a bowl, and added the cabbage and onion to the pan, along with some seasoning and garlic. I stir fried this until it was crispy tender.  In the meantime the potatoes were boiling.  
Once the vegetables were crispy tender, I threw the smoked sausage back into the pan and added some vinegar and mustards, an almost Germanic touch. By the time the flavours had all melded together nicely,  the potatoes were done and ready to drain.
 
I tossed them with some butter, seasoning, a bit of dried parsley flakes and voila!  Dinner was ready.  A meal fit for a king . . . and ready in not much more than about half an hour.   I'd call that a result!
