About the ingredients

Because this is a fairly simple dish to make, with very few flavorings, it’s important that you choose quality ingredients to bring out the best of flavors. When buying smoked sausage, check the label for soy, potato starch, beef protein, and preservatives. Go for natural sausages containing only pork (or beef) and spices. When buying cabbage, choose heads with compact leaves and that feel heavy for their size. The outer leaves should have a deep color, be shiny, and not have any discoloration.

Health Benefits

Since this is a cabbage-based dish, it comes with many health benefits associated with cruciferous vegetables. Researches found that cruciferous vegetables are particularly high in antioxidant phytochemicals found to help prevent cancer. Cabbage is also a good source of vitamin K, folate, and fiber.
