I'll give it five stars, but I changed almost everything after reading the reviews of others. I substituted knockwurst for smoked sausage. I added 4 cloves of garlic instead of 1. I used a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes, chopped in their juice. I omitted garlic salt and instead used 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 jalapeno pepper (finely minced), 1 tsp oregano, and 1/2 tsp thyme. I browned the onions, garlic and celery in some oil before adding the meat. I browned the ground beef and knockwurst before adding the rest of the ingredients. I brought the mixture to a boil, lowered the flame, and simmered the mixture covered for 25 minutes. When I was done, my daughter and husband gave this dish high praise by eating their entire portions. My daughter is a picky eater who at first tried to pull out pieces of the cabbage. When I next look up, her plate was empty! :D
