This recipe is very interesting. It is tasty and sweet. The cabbage and sausage pair perfectly, and the apples add the sweet twist. Delicious! When I did the recipe I didn´t have apples, so I substituted for pears, and it also came out amazing!
8 Italian style sausages, cut into small pieces (without the casing)
1 onion, diced
1/2 red cabbage head, thinly sliced
2 apples (or pears), peeled and cut into small pieces
1 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp agave syrup
1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 bay leaf
Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat, until the onion is translucent. Add the cut sausage and cook until golden and done on the inside, for about 4 minutes.
Add the cabbage and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally so it mixes well.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce to a low heat and cook for about 20 minutes until the cabbage is soft and tender. Stir occasionally. Discard bay leaf before serving.
Serve as is for a low-carb meal, or serve with white or brown rice for a complete dish. My kids ate it with the rice and loved it!
