Miz Helen's Cabbage and Sausage Stew

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.

I am sharing this with:



  1. I had my very first taste of Polish Kielbasa about a month ago. (I was a vegetarian most of my life and just new at trying certain things.) My husband's mother's side is all Polish and his father's side is all Italian so he likes to eat and loves to eat meat. I never saw anything like it, but I am slowly but surely "going to the meat side." I must admit it's easy to get one's needed protein this way!

    Anyway, I loved it - though I am not a fan of's that texture - but the taste was amazing and this dish is just perfect for this cold weather! Going to try it, serious comfort food, Kitty! TY for sharing! Hugs!

  2. I'm a fan of cabbage so this would go over fine even in my crock pot. I'd cooke my sausage a lot before hand, thanks

  3. I love cabbage Kitty and always look for more ways to make it-sounds good! I like the shot of hot sauce at the end too:@)

  4. Great Kitty...I was just looking for a recipe with some cabbage & kielbasa I had on hand so that's perfect!

  5. Boy, would that hit the spot today...we are FREEZING here!! My hands & feet have been cold all day.
    Thanks for the recipe, Kitty. As soon as I can get some low sodium broth in the house, I'll try making it. Soup seems to get DH into trouble, breathing wise, due to the fluid retention from the salt. *sigh* I've had to make lots of changes to how I cook.
    Hope that you are well & that your Mom is safe up here in this bitter cold & snow.

  6. Sign me up, Kitty. I love cooked cabbage! Going to try your recipe. This looks fabulous.

  7. I can practically smell the wonderful aroma! This would be perfect for a cold winter day! xo Karen

  8. Oh yes! We love cabbage and I will certainly be making this! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  9. Hi Kitty, been busy with mom's appointments but she is doing well now :-) I have a nice head of cabbage from the farm, and this sounds very hearty for our cold nights. xo

  10. Bob loves cabbage soup. Will have to give this a try.

  11. This sounds perfect for a chilly day. I often think, why don't we have cabbage more often. Have a lovely weekend Kitty. xo

  12. Hi Kitty, I love cabbage and this looks soooo yummy. Will have to try this one! It surely will warm your tummy!

  13. You're so right ~ Miz Helen always comes up with the most delicious, comforting dishes! Somehow I missed this one so thank you for sharing. I was in a hurry the other day at the grocery store, saw the cabbage and couldn't think immediately what to make. This will be made soon!


  14. This looks like comfort food in a bowl Kitty with our frosty temperatures!
