Cabbage Braised with Bratwurst

I had some bratwurst left from last cookout and instead of sticking it to the freezer, I decided to cook this bachelor food: braised cabbage with brats and tomato paste.

There is not much hassle with meat, cabbage is hard to mess up, just fry all ingredients together and salt to taste.

You can replace brats with any kind of sausage to your taste, even sliced bologna will work.

Diluted tomato paste can be replaced with fresh tomatoes, peeled and pureed, but that is an exercise for an experienced bachelor…

Ingredients:
