Cabbage and Kielbasa Stew

Submitted by: DIANESZ

Introduction

My husband loves kielbasa and he loves cabbage. This way we get them both. It's filling and good for you with lots of fiber. I use the turkey kielbasa to lower the fat content and calories and the taste is just as good. My husband loves kielbasa and he loves cabbage. This way we get them both.

Ingredients

    1 head of cabbage, coarsley chopped
    1 cup green bell pepper, chopped (optional)
    1 cup sliced and chopped onion (more if desired
    2 small cans sliced mushrooms
    1 pound turkey kielbasa
    2 tbsp. caraway seed (more or less to taste)
    salt and pepper to taste (I do this after it has cooked)
    1 cup of water

Directions

Put one cup of water in a large pot. Put in the whole head of coarsely chopped cabbage. Layer on the chopped onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Slice the kielbasa into 1/2 inch slices and layer on top. Add the caraway seeds and cover the pot. Cook on med. low, allowing the cabbage to steam a bit with the water in bottom and to create it's own juice to steam in. The onions and kielbasa will steam cook also and the flavors will seep down to the cabbage. Cook until cabbage is tender (about 1/2 hour max.) and then stir all the ingredients together and mix them up. Cook just a bit longer to blend flavors. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve as is or serve over wide noodles.

The nice thing is, this can be turned into cabbage soup the next day by adding some tomato juice and any other thing you want in your soup.

You can add carrots to this but it does lengthen the cooking time unless you use canned carrots.

Hope you like it. It is very filling and nice on a cool evening or when the rain is keeping you shut in. Very little effort is involved in preparing this.
