A simple main dish recipe
Recipe type: Main Dish
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, cored, seeded and sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter (or your favorite GAPS legal fat)
  • ¼ of a large head of cabbage, sliced
  • 2 sausages weighing about 5 ounces each (I used Andouille)
  1. Place one tablespoon of butter and ¼ cup of water into a cast iron skillet and bring to a boil. Place the two sausages in the skillet and cover with a lid.
  2. Set a timer for ten minutes.
  3. While the water and butter is coming to a boil, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in another skillet and cut up the vegetables.
  4. Place the vegetables into the skillet as you get them cut.
  5. Once they are all done, pour in ¼ cup of water and place a lid on the skillet.
  6. Allow to cook until transparent, about 20 minutes.
  7. When ten minutes is up for the sausages, remove the liquid but leave the sausages in the skillet.
  8. Roll them back and forth so that they brown nicely on at least two sides.
  9. Once they are browned, remove then and slice into small pieces.
  10. Add back into the pan and cook a bit longer so that the sides of the slices can get a bit browned.
  11. Keep an eye on the vegetables as you don't want them to burn.
  12. After ten minutes remove the lid and continue to cook and stir so that the liquid cooks down.
