Equipment

  • Large skillet with a cover

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil can use olive oil
  • 1 small cabbage around 1.5 lbs chopped
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 small green bell pepper diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 3 ts minced garlic
  • 12 oz Andouille sausage cut up into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Cajun seasoning use your favorite Cajun seasoning to taste!
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Turn your stove to medium high and add oil to your skillet. Once hot, add the sausage and cook (stirring often) until the sausage is a light brown color (about 5-10 minutes). Remove the sausage and place on paper towels to drain. At this point you can remove some of the drippings but I like to leave this in for extra flavor!
