Ingredients:

Cabbage Stew With Sausage:

Use any smoked sausage you have on hand that pairs well with hamburger OR REPLACE the hamburger and use a chorizo or other spicy sausage for fun.

I have used polish franks in this recipe. The are a mild sausage that pairs well with the hamburger and add their own mild flavor to the stew.

Cabbage Stew with Beans:

This healthy soup is full of fibery beans. In this recipe I use the cannoli and garbanzo beans. You can use red kidney beans or even black beans if you have them on hand.

All beans are really good for you and shouldn’t mess up the flavor profile of this great recipe no matter which you choose.

The  beans have a lot of staying power due the the added protein and fiber beans offer. They do add carbs. But beans are really good Hi Fiber carbs so unless you are on a carb restricted diet this soup will work well for you.

Add Sun Dried Tomatoes:

Homemade Sun Dried Tomatoes have so many uses.

I now make my own Sun Dried Tomatoes . And they are EXCELLENT. I use them in so many ways!

I remember vaguely years ago when sun dried tomatoes became the new cool kid on the recipe band wagon. Not being big on expensive gourmet additions in my pantry at the time…I passed them by…

This time I’m putting Sun Dried Tomatoes in Cabbage Beef Stew. I usually use canned, stewed or diced tomatoes in my soups and stews.

Putting in the Sun Dried Tomatoes adds a whole new flavor level to this recipe.

Most of you are probably not surprised. I’m very late to the party on this amazingly tasty and useful ingredient.

All I will say is if you are like me the price may be holding you back. Go ahead and give them a try.
