  • 3 Tablespoons shortening or lard
  • 1 Small Cabbage cored and chopped
  • 1 12 ounce package frozen mirepoix
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Pound smoked sausage sliced into thin rounds


  1. Dice the smoked sausage into rounds. Heat the shortening or lard in a large pan on medium-high heat until melted.

  2. Add the diced sausage to the pan and cook until slightly browned, about 4 minutes. Stir to prevent sticking or burning.

  3. Add the garlic and frozen mirepoix to the pan, and cook until fragrant and soft, about 3 minutes.

  4. Add the cabbage to the pan and toss well to coat in the fat. Season with salt to taste.

  5. Let the cabbage reduce by half, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally as it cooks down to prevent burning and allow it to cook evenly.

  6. Add the diced tomatoes.

  7. When the cabbage has lost much of it's volume and started to turn shiny, slightly translucent, and has lovely browned bits - and the diced tomatoes are heated through it is ready to serve.
