This a WONDERFUL RECIPE! I used Hunt's Fireroasted Tomatoes with Garlic for the diced tomatoes, and just realized, that I completely missed the wine or apple juice. But it was still fntastic. Now I have to try it with the wine!! Thanks for sharing. Koechin

Tasty one! Cabbage really shines in this stew, weather you usually like cabbage or not, it is the heart and soul in here.

A very flexible recipe, and even better the next day, and the day after that! Wonderfully rich flavor that blends and improves over time. I substituted a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes for the non-diced tomatoes in the recipe because that was what I had on hand; I also threw in a can of cannelini beans and used garlic sausage instead of kielbasa (though the flavor was very similar). I also used a couple sprigs of fresh thyme instead of dried and added a dash of cayenne pepper. I cooked it over low heat on the stovetop for close to two hours, and served it with Turkish cornbread #16641. Thanks!
