Cook the Sausages:

  1. Prick the sausages/frankfurters with a fork to prevent bursting. Fry them in a minimal amount of oil until nearly cooked through for sausages or just until browned for frankfurters.

Prepare the Cabbage Pancakes:

  1. Beat the eggs with salt and pepper.
  2. Squeeze any excess liquid from the cabbage, mix with cornstarch, then combine with the egg mixture. Divide into four equal portions.
  3. Heat a small amount of oil in a 8-9 inch (20-22 cm) skillet. Pour one portion of the cabbage mixture into the pan, shaping it into a rectangle (the mixture will spread a bit). Cook until the underside is golden, about 1.5 minutes.
