This super easy skillet cabbage recipe is made with just a few seasonings and a little vinegar. This is an excellent side dish for a ham meal, or serve the easy cabbage with corned beef, pork roast or chops, or sausages. The combination of vinegar and a small amount of sugar gives the cabbage a sweet-sour taste.
This dish takes less than 30 minutes, start to finish. Crumbled bacon would be delicious in this cabbage dish as well, or add a little leftover diced ham. Cabbage and sausage are truly a perfect match and never more so than when fried together in this Cabbage and Sausage Skillet. I’ve made endless dishes combining these two ingredients, but when I saw this simple recipe inside my friend Gina’s new cookbook, One and Done, I knew it needed to happen soon.

As a bonus, this skillet meal is easy to throw together without much notice making it perfect for a busy weeknight dinner.Nothing special is required to make this recipe. Start with cabbage and sausage, then chop an onion, add a little garlic, salt, pepper, and a tiny splash of vinegar.
