Turkey Sausage with Fennel Sauerkraut & Potatoes

Inspired by the Alsatian classic choucroute garni, this comforting, one-pot meal takes a shortcut with bagged shredded cabbage. Serve topped with additional brown mustard, if you like.

Serves 2

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 6 ounces sweet Italian turkey sausage links
  • 3/4 cup 1/2-inch diced red potatoes
  • 2 cups packaged shredded cabbage, preferably “angel hair” style (see Tips for Two)
  • 1 small bulb fennel, quartered, cored and thinly sliced, plus 1 tablespoon chopped feathery tops
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown or whole-grain mustard

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, turning often, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer the sausage to a cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch pieces. (The sausage will not be thoroughly cooked, but it will continue cooking later.)

Step 2

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add cabbage, sliced fennel, onion, garlic powder, fennel seed and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the cabbage has wilted slightly, about 3 minutes more.

Step 3

Add broth, vinegar and mustard. Stir to incorporate the mustard; bring to a simmer. Place the sausage on top of the cabbage mixture; cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the sausage is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in chopped fennel fronds and serve.
