  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small head Savoy or green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, add the sliced kielbasa and cook until browned, about 1-2 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve.
  • Add more oil if necessary, then sauté the onion until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and continue cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the cabbage and stir to combine. Then, pour in the white wine, using a wooden spoon to deglaze the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook - stirring every now and then, until the cabbage is soft, about 10 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking another 5 minutes, to let the cabbage caramelize.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Then, stir back the sausage, tossing to combine, and cook for another couple of minutes, until the sausage is warmed through.
  • Serve immediately!
