I made this recipe last night and it was amazing!! I accidentally bought white kidney beans and regular (non-smoked/non-spicy) sausage. My family loved the soup!! However I think it would be better if next time I make sure to use red beans and either smoked or spicy sausages to give it a bit of a kick. I cut the recipe in half and it fed 4 of us next day too! Definitely will make again!!!! Also I think more veggies would be an added bonus!:) Read More

This was okay. I made it exactly as stated and found there too be too much cabbage (the sausage got lost in the soup because of it). I also found it tasted way too much like ketchup. We have a lot of left overs and I will happily eat them but I doubt I will make this again. Read More

OH - MY - GOODNESS!!!!!!!! This soup was amazing! I threw in a bag of frozen brussels sprouts/cauliflower/carrots at the end for a little more texture. I'd ad more next time just cause it complimented the cabbage so well. Great way to use one of the cabbages I caught at the St. Patrick's Day parade and different from coleslaw or cabbage salad. The ketchup gave it a surprisingly yummy and different flavor as did the vinegar. I'd like to try apple cider vinegar instead of white. Also I used a 13-qt. pot and it filled it to the brim which didn't surprise me. Thanks for a truly slamming recipe! Read More

Running a search for ingredients I came across this. It sounded a little strange to me and had to think about trying it. I had the same feelings about beefuna burgers and they are delecious so I decided to give this a try. I made some changes but minor ones as I prefer more of a stew than soup and this was delecious. We fell in love with it and will be having this as a regular from now on. Read More

I have to admit I was a little scared of this recipe but intrigued by the ingredients. I even called my girlfriend (who is of Portuguese decent) to make sure the ingredients sounded cohesive. The only changes I made was to use Chorizo instead of smoked sausage (make sure to drain the Chorizo after you cook it) and I used beef broth instead of water & I reserves 1/4 of the cabbage and didn't add it until the last 15 minutes of cooking so it had some crunch to it. The first 2 bites I thought 'Oh my goodness this was a mistake' and then on the 3rd bite it was like it all came together and it was amazing! Each bite got better and better. It just takes getting use to the uniqueness of the ingredients but it is so worth it. This will be a perfect dish to make in the Winter. I served mine with a garden salad and a crusty French bread. Thank you for sharing the recipe. It will be made in our house over and over. Read More

One of my absolute favorites! I'm originally from Hawaii but my paternal grandparents are Portuguese. Since I'm so far away from home this is my comfort food. I do what my grandmother does...add a little bit of "whatever". This time it's leftover Thanksgiving ham:-) Read More

I have made this dish several times and it vanish just like that. Next was the challenge of making it for 30 people. I was a bit uncomfortable but when served the soup was gone with 2 hours. They wanted more. Good Recipe!!!!! Read More

I was skeptical about this recipe but wanted to use up odds and ends in the pantry/frig - smoked sausage cabbage etc. so did an ingredient search on Allrecipes. This is amazingly good - I used white beans instead of kidney beans and about half the onions. I also added a few diced carrots for color. Go ahead and add the vinegar; I hesitated but it made it even better. Highly recommended. Read More
