Smoked Sausage W/Fried Potatoes and Cabbage
Sept 28 2016
We went from hot summer to fall in about 2 days here in Ohio. I don’t think it got much above 60 today. Oh well the supper I had planned would taste better in cooler weather. I had smoked sausage and fried potatoes and cabbage.
A little country store about 5 miles from here had some good looking sausage that came from a farm and butcher shop just south of here. I have wanted to see if it was good.
I decided to smoke the sausage on my Traeger for an hour then brown in a skillet. I had some Dutch baby yellow potatoes to use. I cleaned and cut in half about a pound of the Dutch potatoes and cut about ¾ small head of cabbage in 1 inch squares.
I poured about 1 ½ cups of water in my Instant Pot, added a steamer basket, the cabbage and potatoes. I lightly salted it. I did them on steam mode for 10 minutes after the sausage was on the smoker for a half hour. They would be done to add to the skillet.
After the sausage was on at 190 deg. on my smoker an hour I browned them up some, about 4 minutes per side in a skillet sprayed with a little olive oil. I removed them to a plate and added a couple pats of butter and the potatoes and cabbage to the skillet to brown some. I added a little salt and fresh ground pepper. When it was getting brown I nestled the sausage back in and heated about 5 minutes.
I served it with some toasted English muffins with butter. I had some Maille mustard with my sausage. The wife and I agreed it was good, pretty good sausage and we always like fried potatoes and cabbage!
