Pork sausages with caraway seed, cabbage and apple slaw

Any good sausages work well in this dish; German sausages are a particularly good match with the aniseed from the caraway seed.

You'll need

2 tsp caraway seeds 350 gm cabbage, shredded on a mandolin 100 ml apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp caster sugar 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil ½ pink lady apple, cut into julienne and toss in lemon juice to prevent discolouration 1 tbsp dill, coarsely chopped, plus extra to serve 6 thick pork sausages 6 long white hotdog rolls, split lengthways To serve: butter, softened To serve: German- or English-style mustard To serve: white onion, finely diced


  • 01
  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill pan to medium heat. Dry-roast caraway seeds until fragrant (30 seconds), transfer to a mortar and pestle, coarsely crush and set aside.
  • 02
  • Place cabbage in a large bowl. Stir vinegar and sugar in a small bowl until sugar dissolves, pour onto cabbage, add oil, season to taste and set aside until cabbage starts to soften (5 minutes). Add drained apple, dill and caraway, season to taste and toss to combine.
  • 03
  • Grill sausages, turning occasionally, until cooked through (6-8 minutes).
  • 04
  • Grill buns cut-side down until toasted (1-2 minutes). Spread with butter and mustard, top each with a sausage, then slaw and onion to taste, finish with some extra dill and serve.
