Sausage with Cabbage and Corn Sauté

Lee Harrelson
Total time 25 mins

Serves 4 to 6

Italian sausages are often an excellent value, especially when they're on sale. As with anything, make sure to compare prices between brand names and sausages that are packaged by the store's butcher.


  • 8 sweet Italian sausages (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Half of a small head green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 1 large onion, cut in half and thinly sliced into half-moons
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup corn kernels (cut from 2 fresh ears or thawed frozen)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Prick sausages with a fork and cook, turning occasionally, until browned all over and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add cabbage and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is just tender, 3 to 4 more minutes.
