My family enjoyed this very much.Sorry i had not gotten around to reviewing it yet, as i cooked this twice already, because we enjoyed it that much.I also slow simmered uncooked cabbage and uncooked sausage in layers coverd in my dutch pot.The juices blended well this way.I also used green cabbage once then savoy.We seemed to enjoy the green better.Yummy thanks so much.
