Cabbage, potatoes, and smoked sausages are flavored with a little apple juice and vinegar, along with thyme and other seasonings. This is a flavorful mixture, and it makes a nice everyday dinner. Serve the dish with crusty bread and a tossed salad.

Feel free to add more cabbage to this dish if you have a larger slow cooker.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds
  • red-skinned potatoes, unpeeled or peeled, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
