Cajun Cabbage Jambalaya - The Southern Lady cooks

Cajun cabbage jambalaya is a skillet meal you will make over and over again.  My family loves cabbage and this Cajun cabbage is one of their favorites.  I made this in a ten inch iron skillet but you can use any large skillet.  We love this meal for weeknights when you need something quick and easy or any time you just want a great comfort food meal.  I serve this with my recipe for sweet cornbread muffins and there is very little left over.  Cajun cabbage keeps well for several days in the fridge and can be reheated.  We love anything with cabbage at my house!  You could also use chicken, shrimp or hamburger in this recipe.

Cajun cabbage jambalaya is made with simple ingredients:

Pork sausage

Smoked sausage


Green pepper



Diced tomatoes

Chicken broth



Black pepper

Cajun seasoning

Rice or rice of your choice

You could easily make this “lighter” by replacing the pork sausage with turkey sausage and the smoked sausage with turkey smoked sausage. We love the cajun seasoning in this dish and it really helps to make this dish pop! If you have followed our site for any amount of time you know we love easy skillet dishes. Love this comment:

“This is fabulous; I’m on my second plate of it right now. I forgot to get pork sausage at the store so I just used a pound of the smoked sausage instead; similarly added an extra bell pepper because, really, is there ever too much bell pepper? I used Tony Chachere’s Original Creole seasoning and the finished product has so much flavor! This recipe definitely goes to the top of my list for quick, easy and delicious!” – Elsa
