What you need

1 small head of cabbage
1 small onion
1 clove of garlic or 1 tsp of minced garlic
2 packages of sausage
1/2 cup of water or broth
slash of oil on the bottom of your pressure cooker
salt and pepper



How to cook

Turn your Instant Pot on saute.  
Place oil on the bottom of your pot.
Cut up your onions into small strips.
Place the garlic and onion onto the bottom of your Instant Pot.
Next, you will cut up your cabbage into strips, trash the core.  
Place the cabbage in the Instant Pot.
Make sure your pot isn’t more than 1/2 full at this point.

Then cut up your sausage and place in the Instant Pot 
on top of the cabbage.
Mix up well, add your water or chicken broth then place the lid on the Instant Pot.
Turn the saute off and place on manual for 5 minutes.
Once the pressure cooker beeps turn it off and you will let the 
pressure cooker naturally release for 10 minutes.
Lastly, let the rest pressure release and open the lid and enjoy your dinner.



    • You might add in another 1/2 cup since you need the water for the potatoes.

      Cabbage releases some water is why the amount of water works great for this recipe.

    • I buy a bag of small golf ball size of redskin potatoes. Since they are already in a mesh bag, I rinse them under the tap then cut the bag open and add to Instant Pot…I use a cup and a half of water with some Better Then Boullion Chicken flavoring stirred in to Pot. I also add caraway seeds layered throughout the Pot. I use High Pressure for 18 – 20 Minutes and Quick Release. DELICIOUS!!!

  1. This was my VERY FIRST Pressure Cooking recipe that I have made in my new Instant Pot. So easy. Thank you for sharing. I’m going to go look for my next recipe!

  2. I didn’t like how soggy the cabbage was, I like it a lot more crispier. But it had good taste though. Normally I make this dish in a frying pan. I was looking for a quicker way of making it. I also added Noodles to it. Maybe next time I’ll do a quick pressure release rather than 10 minute normal release.
