Miz Helen from Miz Helen's Country Cottage is always fixing up something comforting in her kitchen. I made her Cabbage and Sausage Stew and am sharing it here for those of you that love cooked cabbage. I hope you'll try this heartwarming stew and visit Miz Helen and tell her that I said "hi"!
1 1/4 pound Polish Kielbasa Sausage, Sliced (I used 2 -13 ounce packages of Turkey Kielbasa)
2 pounds unpeeled Red Potatoes, medium chopped
2 medium size onions, medium chopped
3 carrots chopped
7 to 8 cups cabbage chopped (this was about 3/4 of a large cabbage)
5 to 6 cups chicken broth (I used 5 cups) 2 cloves garlic chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons parsley chopped
1 teaspoon nutmeg (I used freshly grated nutmeg and didn't measure)
dash Cayenne pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a hot dutch oven brown the sausage in the oil and remove it from the pot.
Brown the vegetables in the sausage oil then add the sausage back into the pot.
Add the garlic, thyme, parsley, nutmeg, Cayenne, salt and pepper and mix well.
Add the Chicken Broth and mix well. Bring the stew to a boil and then cover, and reduce the heat to low and cook on low for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are beginning to break up. (I actually put the pot in a low oven (200 degrees) and cooked it all afternoon).
To serve, I added a couple of dashes of hot sauce.
