This was amazing... I doubled the recipe and placed in the crock pot instead of cooking it on the stove.. I cooked it on high for 4 hours... frying the kielbasa first. *** I made this the 2nd time, this time using low sodium broth, and low fat kielbasa... I also added sliced carrots and cubed turnips. It turned out perfect!

This soup turns out rather salty. I would either omit the salt or not put in the beef broth. Other than that, it was delicious.

This recipe as it is written is very good, very easy and very quick! I love the salty and sweet combination! I do not think that the added salt is necessary, as kielbasa, beef broth and butter all contain salt. I have made this recipe and variations of it several times. To make it a bit more healthful, I now omit the butter and simply saute the kielbasa with the onion and then drain off the excess fat. I also omit the salt and the sour cream. It is just as yummy and I do not feel guilty eating it! To tonight's variation I added about 2 c. more cabbage, 1 c. frozen corn, 1 1/2 c. frozen cooked great northern beans (I buy dry beans, then cook and freeze them for later use), 2 medium potatoes, cubed. The beans and potatoes cook down enough to thicken the broth a bit. I served it with homemade garlic toast. DElicious! I made the garlic toast using leftover crusty bread slices which I buttered with a mixture of 4 T. softened butter mixed with 2 large cloves of garlic, minced. Placed them on a baking sheet under the broiler at high temp for about 2-3 minutes. Keep your eye on them or you'll have garlic toast flambe!

I tried this recipe and it turned out really good. It was quick, but I made it my crockpot and let it cook for about 6 hours. Next time I may add potatoes to give it added flavor.

Very good but I think next time I'll use a can of tomato sauce and a can of diced or crushed tomatoes instead of the tomato soup.

We're not big cabbage eaters but when I bought a giant bag of cole slaw from Costco, I needed to use it up! My husband requests this and my picky 13 year old likes it too! Us girls like it with sour cream, my husband without. I use turkey sausage just to cut the fat content. Great for chilly fall weather!

I like lots of sausage chunks so I used 2 lbs, don't care for beef broth so I substituted chicken and I threw in some cajun spice seasoning. Yummy! Hubby ate it all up and I had nothing left for lunch the next day *sigh*.

I've got several variations of this recipe, and they are all GREAT! They are so quick and easy to prepare, cheap, nutritious, and you can add whever veggies you have on hand (I usually add a small diced potato and sometimes sliced zucchini). This stew works well with kielbasa, brats or Italian sausage. I use canned tomato sauce instead of tomato soup as I find the soup too sweet. I also add a little garlic powder. This recipe is SO versatile! Thanks, Jo!
