Fried Cabbage, Easiest One Pot Meal, and Everyone Here Loves it!

This is an idea that evolved from one of those little cookbooks groups publish to raise money for their organizations.  It was called Cabbage Throw-All in 1978 and was from "Food Tales from Rolling Hills"  a Nursing Home facility raising money for their arts and crafts department.  They had a short paragraph directing you to fry whatever you have on hand vegetables with whatever you have on hand meats combined with cabbage and topped with prepared Ramen noodles.

What I have found most interesting is that when my kids were little and would not eat vegetables this they loved??  To this day if I make it everyone loves it and there are happy smiles all around.

1/2 head green cabbage shredded
1 large onion diced
3 carrots shredded
1 bunch green onions sliced
1/4 head of red cabbage shredded
3 boiled red potatoes with peels left on
1 pound smoked sausage sliced
3 T. oil or bacon drippings
Black pepper
Soy sauce

Heat oil in large flat bottomed pan and stir fry sausage and potatoes until browned.  Add the vegetables and stir fry 5-6 minutes until tender crisp.  Season to taste with soy sauce and black pepper.  I have never made the Ramen noodles but I am sure they would be great too.

NOTE:  This is just what I had on hand last night.  You can use any meat and any vegetables with cabbage for this.
