Reviews for Kielbasa Cabbage Stew
"This was yum-my! I didn't have the beans. So, I doubled the cabbage. My mom was disappointed I wasn't making cabbage and sausage, with boiled potatoes on the side. One bite, she said, ohhh, this is gooo-oood. This is a keeper for me!"
"This is a recipe my family enjoys! It is a great take on a lazy cabbage roll stew. I love how quick and easy it is. I like to use white or black beans in place of the kidney beans."
"I got this recipes years ago from a Taste of Home magazine. I absolutely love it! Misplaced the recipe, googled it and it came up - so excited to have it back. Delicious."
