I had a package of Aidell's Smoked Chicken & Apple Sausages (nitrite/nitrate free) that I simply sliced and tossed into a large nonstick skillet with a little butter and browned them until nice and caramelized on both sides. Then I opened up a large 2-pound bag of coleslaw mix (by Taylor Farms) and dumped about half of it on top of the sausages and stirred it around, added about 1/4 cup water, covered and cooked over medium-high heat to allow the cabbage to steam and cook down until tender-crisp. The coleslaw mix consists of mostly green cabbage but also had shredded red cabbage and some grated carrots in it as well. I added a little more butter and uncovered the skillet to allow any remaining liquid to completely cook off. Voila...dinner was ready in 15 minutes.
I frequently make Stir-Fried Sausage & Sprouts...but this version was even easier to prepare since I used a bag of coleslaw mix which didn't require any prep like necessary when I make it with sprouts. I snapped a couple quick photos below. It's nice to have food available to put a quick dinner together when you're in a pinch, and believe it or not, something this simple turned out so tasty. I can't wait to have leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. I included the easy peasy recipe below. Enjoy!
Stir-Fried Sausage & Slaw
2 to 3 tablespoons butter, divided
4 smoked sausage links, sliced diagonally into 1/4-inch slices (like Aidell's Chicken & Apple Sausage)
16-ounce bag coleslaw mix
In a large 12-inch nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter and add sliced sausage links. Cook, stirring frequently until browned on both sides, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in coleslaw mix and about 1/4 cup water; cover and cook until cabbage is tender-crisp or desired doneness, about 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover and add remaining butter and cook another minute or until all liquid is cooked off.
