This recipe is so simple. I made some changes to it because I had other ingredients: I used fully cooked kiebasa and boneless/skinless chicken breasts instead of the hambone and sausage. I also only had onion, potato, carrot and cabbage. My daughter loved this, even though she "doesn't like cooked cabbage!" Thanks, Karen!
The ONE time I go to buy ham hocks, the store didn't have them. Typical! Instead I used a boneless piece of ham that I diced into chunks. I made it as written, and thought it was pretty bland, so I ended up adding a lot of garlic powder, onion powder, and also some chicken bouillon paste. Much better. Happy New Year everyone!
Wow! I wasn't expecting much from this recipe, I thought it be bland and boring with no spices or garlic, but it was terrific. I didn't have ham hocks so I used only wild rice brats. I sliced them and sauteed them, then sauteed the root vegetables in a little olive oil, and used chicken broth instead of water. Next time I'd like to add some garlic.
Great recipe! I had turnips, carrots, garlic scapes, cabbage and kohlrabi from my CSA share and didn't know what to make. Pulled out some smoked sausage and started there. I didn't have ham hocks, but not to worry. Sliced the sausage and sauteed with a sweet onion. Deglazed the pan with white wine as well. In a crockpot I put 5 chopped turnips, 1 chopped kohlrabi, carrots, and a few garlic scapes sliced thin. I added a can of black beans and corn and a bouillon cube. Lastly I added a can of mild chiles and didn't add the cabbage until about an hour before serving. My husband said the turnips tasted like potatoes and it was a great soup. Super easy and used my produce the best way I could find.
this is like Grandma's but she used pork instead and it is even more wonderful!
This recipe is really good! I cooked it in the slow cooker with about 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk instead of water to make it creamy, and it might have actually worked if I'd added more milk as it cooked out. Spicy sausage gave it a nice kick, too. I'll definitely make this recipe again.
This was a great "after the barn chores on a cold night" meal. Put it on before we went out and it was ready when we came in! Talk about easy!!
I left out the rutabagas and turnips. I live in a VERY small town and we very rarely can get anything like that. I also added chunks of bacon and we ate the sausage on the side. In a round-about way, a very hearty meal. Easy too.
