Ingredients

  • 6 uncooked Polish sausages

FOR THE SWEET PICKLED CABBAGE

  • 1 cup finely shredded green cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt to taste (I used about a teaspoon)

FOR SERVING

  • Diced chiles – I used diced manzano pepper
  • Spicy brown mustard

Instructions

  1. First, make the sweet pickled cabbage a day ahead by addig the vinegar, water, salt and sugar to a small pot. Bring to a quick bowl, then pour over the shredded cabbage. Cool slightly and store in an airtight container in the fridge overnight.
  2. The next day, heat one side of your grill to medium-high heat and the other to low for indirect cooking. Lightly oil the grates.
  3. Set the sausages on the cooler side of the grill and let cook about 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are mostly cooked through.
  4. Set them onto the hot side of the grill and cook them another 4-5 minutes per side, until they are nicely browned. The internal temperature should be 150 degrees F.
  5. Serve the sausage on toasted buns and top with pickled cabbage, diced chilies and spicy brown mustard.

Recipe Notes

Heat Factor: Mild-Medium, though you can really spice things up with a spicy homemade mustard and extra spicy peppers.

Cooking time does not include refrigeration time for the pickled cabbage.
