I liked this as a base. I cook for 2 plus enough for my husband to bring to work the next day. 32 oz of unsalted chicken stock, 1/2 pound of Kowalski (made in Detroit) Polish sausage, 1 cup of shredded cabbage slaw with carrots, 4 small red potatoes with skins (chopped), 1/8 c. dried minced onion, 1 1/2 t. garlic powder, 1 t. onion powder, 1/8 t. cayenne. Cook until potatoes are soft. Add 6oz of Velveeta until melted, took some stock out before that to use for a thickening mixture, mixed with flour. After cheese is melted and you thicken it, then add 1/2 cup of half-n- half. We enjoyed this immensely. Husband had 2 bowls, I had my share, and he was able to bring some to work today. Thank you!
My family loved this and I loved that it was so simple. I used one bag pre-shredded cabbage and instead of cooking this on the stovetop, I put everything into the crockpot and cooked on high for 5 hours, adding the velveeta the last 15-20 minutes. Added one small onion instead of the onion powder. Easy and tasty!
Pretty good cabbage soup...had some leftover brats and half head of cabbage, so cooked this up. Used a lot less butter, added onions and carrots. Didn't have velveeta, so used sharp cheese instead. Easy to make.
Great winter recipe! I made a few slight adjustments to use ingredients we use regularly: I used a savoy cabbage, and one onion, sliced (instead of onion powder) and added three cloves of garlic, chopped. And I used 1/2 chicken stock and 1/2 water. I never buy velveeta, so I simply added some grated tasty cheese just before serving. Very flavoursome: thanks for sharing, Nasseh!
The Velveeta saved this from being a very plain dish, however it was good even though I did not use the 1/2 cup of butter. I sorely missed the addition of onions and carrots so next time, if there is one, I will be adding those. TFS, made for Zingo, ZWT4.
Mmmmmmm....... a nice, filling, homey stew. I liked that it was loaded with cabbage. I did add a chopped onion, just because I always put onions in my soups/stews. I did use the optional (6 oz) of Velveeta. It didn't make it overly cheesy, but sort of thickened the stew a bit with just a little cheesiness. I used reduced-fat kielbasa. This soup's mild, pleasant flavor is perfect for kids. Thanx for sharing your Mom's recipe. It's a real tummy-warmer!
I can see how young children would like this - it's very mild in flavor. 'Stew' by definition means ingredients are cut into similar-sized portions, so having the head of cabbage in four large pieces was a bit different. Made as written, I ended up with over 3 quarts of thin liquid. I did use the optional 6oz Velveeta. I guess we're used to a heartier, thicker stew. Kielbasa, cabbage and potatoes is a nice combo. I wish I could rate it higher, but it was just okay for us. Made for ZWT4. Thank you for posting.
