  1. Please add me also, I love the recipes!

  2. Please add me to your E-mail list

  3. It’s even better if you add a can of Campbell’s Cream of Tomatoe soup before cooking. Yum!

  4. Making this now. Has anyone added Lipton onion soup mix (dry) ?

  5. Janet Bander says:

    I added Carrots to it….

  6. Here’s our family version of this..cut kielbasa into 1/2 inch slices (we have a large family and use between 4-5 hillshire farms) saute in butter with cut up onions for 10 minutes or so to get color and onions soft, then throw in 5lbs of peeled cut and washed potatoes and then throw in a bag of sour kraut that has been rinsed..add enough water to pot to cover potatoes and liberally add paprika (Szeged sweet if possible)also some salt..pepper and garlic powder or salt…. cook med-high until potatoes are soft and then thicken with flour and serve.

  7. Always made this for my family…on the farm, when they were growing up. STILL DO…no matter who’s around 😀 We all love it. Although the “slow cooker” is new for me. I still love my big lodge enamel coated cast iron HOWEVER. ..I’m liking the slow cooker too; so today I’ll follow this.

  8. I’m having this for supper on Christmas Eve! I can’t wait! :-) x

  9. My Mother made this all the time 50 years ago and I made it for my kids as they were growing up and we all still make it now!!! We love it!!!!

  10. To add a little sweetness , Quarter a medium apple and add to cabbage.

  11. Greek seasoning is good with cabbage. Sounds oh so yummy.

  12. I’d substitute some chicken broth for that water

  13. I cooked this today and it was delicious. cut the smoked sausage on an angle.

    I sliced onions, sliced bell peppers, potatoes (cut in chunks) and baby carrots. I sprinkled with salt, pepper, and any other spices that you might like. Put veggies in a bowl with a little oil and mixed them up. Cooked in OVEN @ 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Add smoked sausage and a little beef broth and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. It is delicious.

  14. I fixed this for my family with cornbread on the side and they absolutely loved it they did say they wanted a new cornbread recipe , they like sweet corn bread do you have any suggestions !!!!! Thanks

      You can add some sugar to just about any cornbread recipe if you want it sweet. There are several cornbread recipes posted under breads on the right hand side of any page just click the breads.

  15. I have made this for years. Add carrots, you can also do in a steamer in about 30 minutes. Layer the longer cooking items on the bottom. Carrots,potatoes, cabbage, onion sausage on top so the juice drips down for more flavor

  16. Sure wish you would make it easy to copy your recipes.

      It is very easy to print the recipes, Marilyn. Just look under each recipe and click on the printer icon. You can remove the photo and any text you don’t want and print just the recipe.

  17. I make this but i add a med onion chopped it seems to give it a lot more flavor and i have added a can of rotel just to give it a little extra kick and of course as it says it goes good with a good ole pan of corn bread,,

    My kids are grown now but they still ask me to make this for them. It’s the only way I could ever get them to eat cabbage. And yep I’m a southern raised girls and so are my kids. Georgia born and raised…

  19. I tried this today and found it to be very good. I too added a chopped onion. Flavor was very good. As stated above, its a keeper.

  20. Will make this, only in a smaller amount.

  21. I like a little sprinkle of vinegar on mine!! Great mouth watering meals:-)

  22. Judy, I made this yesterday with a few added ingredients. I had some leftover cooked bacon from breaskfast, I chopped up 4 slices and added, also about 3 Tablespoons of bacon drippings, fresh ground pepper to taste and 1/2 red bell pepper cut into bite-size pieces. IN the words of my husband, “It’s a keeper!” Thank you for a wonderful recipe. I love your site! Theda

  23. i used smoked ham hocks….. so yummy

  24. I put this in the crockpot today and added green peppers and onions. I also used Johnsonville Chicken Sausages. I can’t wait to get home and try it out!

  25. I was so excited to try this recipe today, but alas I must have done something wrong as I found it very bland. It needed something more, onion, a kick, what?

  26. I’m loving this recipe! Looks like comfort food to me! 😀
