Crock Pot Cabbage and Kielbasa

I needed to make something healthier for us after the holidays.  Although I am still going to make a cake or pudding or muffins or, or, or...  Well, something anyway.   Hopefully this will make up for whatever it is I am about to throw together.  Hubby and I love cabbage and kielbasa in the colder months.  It's a comfort food.  Add the sweet peppers, garlic and onion and yes, I am feeling a lot of comfort going on.  I went heavy on the garlic because I'm not feeling great...feel free to cut back.  Enjoy!

Crock Pot Cabbage and Kielbasa

16 oz turkey kielbasa, sliced 1/2 to 3/4"
1 head cabbage, chopped
4 to 6  medium to large carrots, sliced 1/2 to 3/4" 
10 small sweet colored peppers, cut in quarters  
or 1 large colored pepper, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
5 to 10 cloves garlic or 1 to 2 Tablespoons minced
4 cups chicken broth
28 oz can diced tomatoes, mine was flavored with basil, garlic and oregano
(V8 juice is also great in this recipe!)
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon white pepper, or to taste

Prep veggies and kielbasa.  In 6 quart crock pot add chicken broth and tomatoes.  Season with salt and pepper..  Add garlic, peppers, onion, carrots and sausage.  Stir.  Add cabbage, stirring so it will fit.  Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours, depending how you like your veggies.  This can also be cooked on low for 8 hours. Add more salt and pepper, if needed.  Serve with Big Ole Yeast Rolls or One Hour French Bread and you have a great comfort meal!

Simmered Cabbage

What better to eat fix on a dark, windy and rainy Sunday...  This was perfect for yesterday since it had been raining for 3 days and a storm was brewing for the night.  I started this in mid-morning, the smell was wonderful throughout the day.  The thought of supper simmering away on the back burner was a great relief.  This would cook well in a crock pot also.  

Simmered Cabbage

YUM!

1/2 to 1 lb of ground turkey or sirloin
1 head of cabbage, chopped into pieces
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
1 tablespoon minced garlic, I used from jar in olive oil
2 bay leaves
1/2 cup onion, diced
4 cups chicken broth, I used boxed
28 ounces tomato sauce or diced tomatoes
Optional ingredients...whole kernel corn, chunks of potatoes, celery and carrots can be added about 20 minutes before cabbage is done.   
Can also fry bacon, crumble and add at the end, instead of the ground meat.  Using 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings to season.

Brown meat and drain if any fat is present.
Add onions, season with salt, pepper and garlic.  Cook until starting to get tender.
Add chicken broth, tomato sauce or tomatoes, and cabbage.


Bring to boil and simmer until cabbage is almost done and add optional vegetables if desired.  
Cook until tender, stirring occasionally.  
Remove bay leaves before serving.

Enjoy!  <3 and Hugs!

Would be great with this......Buttermilk and Corn Corn Bread.
