Crisped sausage and cheese, lightly charred cabbage, and a savory mustard glaze come together to deliver major beer hall vibes. Because so many of the ingredients are salty, you don’t need to season the vegetables while cooking. Some brown bread on the side for serving is extra credit, but the big showering of dill at the end is nonnegotiable.

4 servings


Tbsp. Dijon mustard


Tbsp. whole grain mustard


Tbsp. soy sauce


Tbsp. Champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar


Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more


oz. Halloumi cheese, torn into 1″ pieces


lb. green cabbage (about ½ medium head), cut into 2″-thick wedges


oz. kielbasa sausage or cooked bratwurst, sliced ¼” thick


medium red onion, cut into 1″ pieces

Chopped dill (for serving)


Step 1

Whisk Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, soy sauce, and vinegar in a small bowl; set mustard sauce aside

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Arrange Halloumi in skillet in a single layer; cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.

Step 3

Arrange cabbage, cut side down, in same pan and cook, undisturbed, until starting to char in spots underneath, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 1″–2″ pieces.

Step 4

Cook sausage in same pan, turning occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to bowl with Halloumi, leaving as much fat in pan as possible.

Step 5

Add more oil to fat remaining in pan to make 1 Tbsp. fat total. Cook onion, undisturbed, until well browned around edges, about 2 minutes. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes more. Return cabbage to pan and add reserved mustard sauce. Cook, tossing often, until combined and cabbage is coated, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat; stir in Halloumi and sausage. Top with dill just before serving.
