  • 1/2 of a head of cabbage
  • 1 large onion
  • 8 tablespoons (one stick) of butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 cup of gluten free chicken broth
  • 1 pound of fully-cooked knockwurst
  • parsley for garnish


  • Slice your onion into thin strips and set aside. Then core and slice your cabbage into thin strips.
  • Melt your butter in a deep skillet over a medium heat. Add onions and cook until caramelized, about ten minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Then add your cabbage slices. It might look like they’re overflowing, but you can cover the pan for a minute or two and they’ll cook down pretty quickly. Then mix the onion and cabbage continuing to sauté.
  • Add chicken broth and stir.
  • During this last few minutes of cooking, add your sliced fully-cooked knockwurst to the skillet and stir.
  • Once the cabbage and onion mixture is completely cooked down and browned on all the edges, about 15 minutes, turn the flame off.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve warm right from the skillet.


  • How to core your cabbage: First, remove the thick outer leaves of your cabbage. Then, with a chef's knife, cut your cabbage in half lengthwise, all the way through the core. Then you'll need to remove the triangular core. To do this, cut into the core at an angle where the stem meets the leaves of the cabbage, and remove it. Now you're ready to slice it.
  • Store the extra half: You can wrap the unused half tightly in plastic wrap or in a plastic bag, making sure to push all the air out. Store it in your fridge, in the crisper drawer.
  • Don't have a food processor or just don't feel like taking it out? This mandoline also works for slicing thin strips. Or just slice your onion and cabbage by hand with a sharp chef's knife into thin strips.
  • Today I stirred my cabbage with knockwurst. You can go with sausage, kielbasa, bacon, hot dogs, or even chicken. It's up to you.
  • I love the buttery garlic flavor of this recipe. Feel free to go with your favorite spices. Will you add curry, chili, cumin, saffron? Make it your own.
  • You can store your cabbage stir fry in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. Just heat in the microwave or a hot skillet.
