This was an awesome recipe! I had to sub in a few ingredients because we were to poor to go to the store but luckily my husband is a sales food rep and we had a sample of this pecan smoked bacon which is also amazing by itself. So I used the bacon for the meat and then I didn't have any cabbage so I subbed in some chopped frozen spinach. It's awesome and the spice mix was great. We ended up putting in 1/4 cup of brown sugar only because the bacon has such a smoky (but sophisticated) flavor and it ended up perfect. Thanks so much!
We loved this stew Deb. It was thick, rich and filling, with alot of flavour and great textures. It was quick and easy to make. I will definitely be making this again. I used hot italian sausage and I didn't add the extra water. I found that the vegetables produced a lovely broth that I didn't want to water down. I did use coarse sea salt and cayenne pepper. Thanks so much for sharing this great dish.
This is a hearty delicious bean recipe! I used my Seasoning for Gound Pork (Italian-Style Sausage) in place of the pork sausages, and omitted the thyme and increased the brown sugar and vinegar, it's a recipe that only gets better with refrigeration time! we loved this, thanks for sharing Deb!...Kitten:)
I made this for my mom's dinner today. My mom loves to eat Northern Beans just by themselves, so when I saw this, I just had to make it for her. Right now I'm being very good on my diet so I didn't taste it, but mom said it was delicious. It went together so quickly and was ready in no time. I did use Hot sausage and omitted the hot sauce, I knew mom wouldn't have it at her house. I also added about an extra cup of cabbage (mom loves cabbage too). I didn't have to add the water, the consitency was perfect. One more thing, after having a serving mom said that the spices were perfect and she didn't have to add salt, which for soups is unusual for her. Thank you for sharing this recipe, both me and mom will make it often.
