  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1 12 oz package smoked sausage, cut into ½ inch slices - Polska Kielbasa works great
  • 1 small head of cabbage cut into chunks
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into 6 pieces
