I don't like to review if I don't make as written, but I was looking for a recipe with smoked sausage , cabbage and potatoes, and this was really good. I just couldn't bring myself to add all that sugar. A tablespoon worked fo me. Thanks Big Ray. Read More

Big Ray's Kielbasa Cabbage Skillet for a Crowd Haiku: "Heavy paprika. This CAN really feed a crowd. It was just too sweet." We love the way cabbage absorbs the delicious slippery-ness of sausage grease, but between the butter, sausage, and the sugar, this was just too TOO much. Paprika was also such a dominant spice that if I made this again, I'd drastically reduce the sugar along with the paprika. The recipe also didn't say anything other than cooking the potatoes for 8 min. in the microwave - covered? uncovered? stir half-way through? The pre-cooking of the potatoes added simplicity to the timing of the recipe but for somebody who doesn't usually microwave spuds, I could've used some direction. Read More

2.19.17 In an effort to reduce the calories and fat, I substituted Hillshire Farm Chicken Hardwood Sausage (use this all the time, tastes like smoked sausage). I scaled this back to two servings (would be 3 servings in this house) which called for 2 Tbsp sugar. I used only one, but whoa, it still was too sweet for us. Would recommend that you start with less sugar, and add more if it suits your taste. I also did add salt and pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I like all of these ingredients individually, but liked them even better combined. Good, old tasty comfort food! Read More

Loved this combination of ingredients. I did use much less sugar as suggested by others and added salt and pepper to taste. Also fried up the potatoes until browned and done. This way I could add the cabbage to the pot last and maintain some firmness in the cabbage which I prefer. Turned out awesome. Read More

I made as directed for 4 servings. Only had 1can of diced tomatoes but used a can of stewed tomatoes also. This is so good. Will make again. It made at least 8 servings though. Read More

I made this as is. It was fantastic! The next day I got the bright idea to add a jar of sauerkraut to it. It was even fantasticer! Read More

I made this to take to a funeral gathering. It was a total success. This recipe made a full crockpot of food that was gone in 45 minute! Next time for my taste I would leave out the sugar. Oh I added cumin to the batch... just made it zing! Read More
