This is a very good and hearty old-fashioned dish that I think came from Taste of Home. It's almost like a stew or even a soup. I have tried it with keilbasa but it wasn't as good. I like to serve it with rye bread.

Ah, comfort food! DH scarfed down two platefuls. Served with Beer Bread #73440. Even better next day as leftovers. One big change I made, because we like our cabbage tender-crisp... Cooked sausage and onion as directed, then added potatoes, carrots, and water to cook for the 25 minutes. LASTLY, added the chopped cabbage and cooked another 10 minutes. This was perfect for us. Oh, and I halved it. It made two filling meals for the two of us. Only spice it needs is black pepper. Thanks for such an easy, yummy, nutritious dish. Love one dish meals!

Excellent. I added cubed apples & used chipolata sausage. My husband & I really enjoyed it.

The smoked sausage sounded so good, but I only had uncooked Italian chicken sausage. So I cooked that up with the onion and a little bit of Liquid Smoke. Instead of potatoes (we avoid them because of their glycemic index) I added sliced, unpealed sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes). I also added a few de-ribbed and chopped collard greens because I didn't have a full head of cabbage, a chopped apple, and a Creole seasoning blend. I don't like overcooked cabbage, so all the veggies went into the pot at the same time. Since there is no grain in this dish, I served it with slices of whole wheat bread. Excellent!
