Directions
1.
In a large saucepan cook potatoes, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool, peel, and thinly slice. Using a mortar and pestle, coarsely crush the spice seeds. Combine seeds, beer, vinegar, mustard, cornstarch, sugar, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce; set aside.
2.
In a small skillet cook onion, celery, and cabbage in hot oil for 3 to 4 minutes or just until crisp-tender. In an ungreased 2-quart rectangular baking dish, layer half of the cabbage mixture, half of the sausage, half of the potatoes, and half of the cheese. Stir seed mixture; spoon half of the mixture atop cheese. Repeat layers, reserving remaining cheese for later. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through. Top with remaining cheese. Makes 6 servings.
