Cabbage, apples and sausage are a classic combination. We use kielbasa, a smoked sausage, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand, such as andouille or bratwurst. The sausages are sliced and combined with the other ingredients in the skillet, allowing their meaty flavor to permeate the dish. Any variety of apple will be delicious, though firm, crisp ones like Granny Smith or Fuji work best, as they hold their shape well when cooked.

A surprisingly good recipe
The recipe was easy to follow and I was able to substitute the pork sausage with sweet Italian sausage - allergic to pork. Not too sweet, but very flavourful.

easy and delicious
Easy, simple recipe with minimal ingredients. use any kind of sausage you have and it'll still taste great. Great for a comforting week night dinner. Definitely serve with your choice of mustard (and sauerkraut) for an extra flavor hit.

Easy, could be better
After the chopping everything, they came together quickly. However, of the four of us only one thought it was excellent. It was okay to the rest of us; if I would make it again (and I only would because I have the ingredients due to having a HUGE cabbage and lots of apples), I would use a dry white wine instead of water. Maybe let the initial cooking of apples and onions develop a bit of a fond. It just needed something!
