Fried Cabbage with Turkey Kielbasa, is a quick and easy one skillet meal for a busy weeknight supper.  Delicious, satisfying, and inexpensive, who could ask for more?

Fried Cabbage is a regular side dish around our supper table.  Jim loves cabbage period, and so do I.  We usually add some kind of cabbage dish to our meal rotation two or three times a month.   

Cabbage is low carb and has healthy nutrients and fiber.  It can be fried in different fats all the way from rich bacon fat to healthy avocado oil which is what I cooked it in this time.

Although, I really like to cook cabbage in bacon fat we are trying to eat healthy these days so for this recipe I started the dish by cooking some thickly sliced turkey kielbasa chunks.


We can almost make a meal out of this dish.  Cook a pan of cornbread and we are happy campers.  It only calls for a few ingredients and little time to cook.  It only takes thirty minutes or less to cook.

I start out frying the kielbasa slices in an iron skillet and remove them to a platter.  I add sliced onions, the chopped cabbage and half a cup of water.  

You may not know this, but cabbage has a lot of water so only add a half cup at a time to keep it from getting too soupy.  Add the sliced kielbasa and season taste to taste.


There are no rules to this dish, make it your own.  Sometimes we like to add a can of Rotel tomatoes and give it that spicy flair to the dish or add some pasta and give it little carbs.  

Hope you enjoy making this deliciously versatile dish.  Enjoy!
