  • 14 oz All Natural Smoked Sausage, Beef I used Nitrate Free
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 head fresh cabbage, shredded
  • cup water
  • cup homemade sugar-free BBQ sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Cut smoked sausage into slices, then saute in butter for approx 7 minutes on medium heat, occasionally stirring to prevent sticking.
  • Remove the sausage from the skillet and set it aside.
  • Add the chopped cabbage, onion,  cloves of garlic, and 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet. Stir until butter is melted. Cover with a lid and allow to simmer on medium/low for approx 10 minutes.
  • Remove lid and stir, adding 1/3 cup of water. Cover and cook on low/medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Remove lid then and stir the cabbage from the bottom then add the remaining 1/3 cup water and cook for an additional 5 minutes if needed. (Depending on the size of your head of cabbage, desired tenderness, and how finely it is chopped, you may need to cook more or less.) 
  • Add the sausage back to the skillet along with 1/3 cup homemade sugar-free BBQ sauce and cook on low/medium heat uncovered for 5 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
