German Sausage and Cabbage

I am coming to you live this week from WurstFest in New Braunfels, Texas.  Where better to post Foodie Friday from than a German sausage and beer Festival?  I am also here on business, the business of CrossFit!  I will be participating in a comp on Saturday that should be super fun.  Now let's get to this German plate that I prepared last night before I left town.  German sausage and cabbage!  Might want to sleep with the window open....


6 German sausages sliced lengthwise in half

1 head of cabbage finely sliced or shredded

4 small apples thinly sliced

1 medium yellow onion finely sliced

2-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1/2 cup Bragg apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon caraway seed

salt and pepper to taste


Brown sausages on both sides in a large cast iron pan. You may have to split into two pans if your cast iron is not big enough.  Remove sausages and set aside. Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and heat to med-high. Add cabbage, garlic, onions and apples and cover for 5 min. Remove lid and add remaining ingredients except for sausages. Stir and cover again for an additional 5 min. When cabbage is tender, nestle sausages within the cabbage and turn off heat for 5 min. Stir one last time and dish to plates.  Eat up!
